School Bans Triangular Flapjacks After Pupil Injured In The Face

A school has slapped a ban on triangular flapjacks after a pupil sustained injuries from a run-in with the oaty treat.

The break-time snack was used as a missile by one pupil and launched at the unsuspecting victim's face.

Dinner staff at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, have now been ordered to cut the treat into squares or rectangles following the incident.

Essex County Council said the ban was "not a county council decision" but confirmed the incident and the decision on behalf of the school.
