Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health says councils need increased powers to help combat childhood obesity

Fast food outlets should be banned from opening within 400 metres of schools in England, according to leading child doctors.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health urged the government to introduce the measure as part of its updated childhood obesity strategy, published this summer.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has suggested a ban on any new fast food outlets being built within such distance and the college called for this to be extended across the UK.
