'Tone deaf' - Piers and Susanna discuss Therese Coffey's response to Marcus Rashford's free school meals appeal

Marcus Rashford is continuing his campaign for free school meals for vulnerable children to carry on through the summer holidays.

Today, Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey replied to the England striker's heartfelt plea for government to change the policy with a single line on Twitter.

Rashford asked government to imagine how it feels for parents fearful their water might not be connected or won't be able to feed their children, to which Coffey simply replied 'water cannot be disconnected though.'

Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid described her response to Rashford as 'tone deaf'.

"No empathy, no attempt to understand, no attempt to support him," said Piers. "The tone deafness of that response epitomises this government. Heartless, utterly devoid of empathy."

Susanna added: "Parents have to make a choice between their services, whether they heat their house, whether they eat themselves and whether they feed their children."
