He seems an unlikely candidate to try to calm democrats down, but party chief Howard Dean is expressing concern about the angry tone of his party's presidential campaign.

Grant found an interesting story about schools being told to consider "lock-ins" at lunch-time to stop pupils going out and buying junk food during the midday break.

As a result, it is recommending that all schools look into the feasibility of introducing a "stay-on-site" policy during lunch-times.
