St Albans 'meat-free' plans

School canteens in St Albans could soon only serve vegetarian food on Mondays as part of plans to tackle climate change.

The City and District Council are looking into becoming the first local authority in the UK to introduce 'meat-free Mondays'.  It would affect places like schools and council offices, where meat would be banned on one day of the week.

The Council - and the charity Animal Aid, who are supporting the move - say this would help climate change efforts by cutting the greenhouse gases released through animal farming.

A consultation's underway to see what people in St Albans think of the idea.  Six schools in the city are also being asked.
