Food banks receive donations amid free school meals row

Food banks have started receiving donations from members of the public wanting to help families struggling without free school meals over half-term.

It comes as the government refuses to back down to public pressure, led by footballer Marcus Rashford, calling for the free school meals scheme to be extended into the school holidays.
