Charities warn school closures could have lasting impact on neediest children

More councils have expressed concern about the phased reopening of schools in England.

The government wants to begin re-opening in stages from 1 June. Currently schools are only open for the children of key workers and the vulnerable, with millions being schooled at home.

Meanwhile charities have warned that prolonged school closures could have a lasting impact on some of the neediest children.
