Paella, kale and pulled pork: School dinners go posh

Gone are the days of mashed potato and cold custard for lunch at school - for some teenagers at least.

A comprehensive in South Manchester has seen a jump in pupils eating school dinners, after hiring two top restaurant chefs to run the kitchen.

Reporter Rowan Bridge visited Loreto High School in Chorlton for BBC Radio 5 live's Drive and spoke to the chefs, including "Masterchef: The Professionals" finalist Adam Leavy.

The programme also heard from the school's headteacher, Peter Tite, who said that they had not spent more on the food budget despite the increase in quality.
