A cashpot of nearly £5 million has been set aside to tackle problems in Telford’s primary schools, including insect-infested kitchens and removing asbestos from older buildings.

Of the fund, £60,000 is to be spent on installing fly screens in the kitchens of 28 primary schools.

A council report to cabinet says the cash is to “address a serious problem of insect infestation in a number of school kitchens”.

Rob, Telford

....how many parents knew that their children's schools had "insect-infested kitchens"?

A take-away, restaurant or commercial food-processing plant would (or could) be prosecuted for this - the council is responsible for public health - so why has this been allowed to happen?

Yes, isn't it strange how the council can take great delight in monitoring the state of other business's hygene and trading standards and yet turn a blind eye to it's own shortcomings and I don't just mean food hygene either.
