Unhealthy food and drinks will be confiscated from pupils during daily bag checks, a school has announced.

The Charles Dickens School in Broadstairs, Kent, said sweets, fizzy drinks and energy drinks would be removed.

The secondary school posted on its website: "Bag checks will take place every morning and any found will be confiscated and not returned."

One parent said sweets made some children "too wired to learn".

Multi-packs of unhealthy food and drink have also been banned and will be taken from pupils during the daily bag checks, the school said.
