Should school gates be locked?28th March 2008
The School Food Trust has called on councils and schools to take action to halt the rise in levels of child obesity.
It wants it to be made harder for children to leave school at lunchtime to eat takeaway food, urging schools to lock the gates. It is also pressing local authorities to stop fast food outlets opening near educational establishments. The trust has released a league table of the local education authority areas with the most takeaway and sweet shops per secondary school, with Brighton and Hove topping the list.
