Health report calls for takeaway ban near schools

A report by London’s Health Commission has called for planning guidance to prevent new junk food outlets opening within 400m (1,300ft) of schools.

The report, called “Better Health for London”, has been put together by former health minister and cancer surgeon Lord Ara Darzi.

It also recommended a smoking ban in Trafalgar Square, Parliament Square and London parks.
