Schools struggle to meet demands for school dinners

Yesterday saw thousands of children across the West go back to school, and for many infants there was the added bonus of a free lunch.

The Government wants to ensure all 4 to 7 year olds get a hot dinner. But not all schools met yesterday's dealine. In Somerset alone, 15% of children will only have a cold lunch, because kitchens aren't ready. And a quarter of the new kitchens in Bristol schools have been delayed as suppliers struggle to meet demand. Ken Goodwin reports from a school in Gloucestershire.


Almost 3 thousand take on Ten Tors challenge

Almost 3 thousand young people are on Dartmoor this evening - pushing themselves to their limits - as this weekend they compete in Ten Tors Challenge. The event takes place ever year - but organiser say for 2014 it's got even harder.

A further 300 teenagers with disabilities are joining them for the jubilee challenge. Clare Forestier reports...


Car parks saturated at Ten Tors

A limited park and ride service will be operating from Okehampton College tomorrow as car parks are saturated on Dartmoor for the Ten Tors challenge.

"Due to further heavy rain falling over the course of today onto already saturated ground, the car parks in Okehampton Camp are increasingly impassable to all but the most robust 4X4 vehicles. Therefore, the successful but limited park and ride facility operated from Okehampton College today will be repeated on Sunday. There will be some limited car parking at the camp.

It must be stressed that 2 wheel-drive and small 4X4s will struggle with mobility. Traffic control will be coordinated in the town. Again, car share system for either park and ride or limited on site parking must be employed. This worked very well this morning and your further patience is greatly appreciated."
