I still recall school holiday hunger, says Labour peer

A Labour peer who received free meals at school has said he can "still taste" the "mounting panic" in his household ahead of the holidays.

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port said he and campaigning footballer Marcus Rashford experienced hunger "not in our heads, but in our whole bodies".

Schools Minister Baroness Berridge said the needs of disadvantaged children were a "priority” for the government.
