Families in Plymouth are facing 'holiday hunger' - but kind-hearted volunteers are stepping in to help.

Thousands of young people are living below the poverty line in the city's most deprived areas, many of whom get free school meals during term-time.

The summer break presents a challenge for cash-strapped parents.

But CATERed, a company which is jointly owned by the council and local schools, will fill the gap by handing out up to 12,000 free lunches over the next six weeks.
