Footballer Marcus Rashford has said he “couldn’t be more proud to call myself British” after the community response to his campaign to get free meals for children during the half-term holiday.
Councils and businesses have offered to provide food during the break for those who are entitled to free school meals.
The England striker told BBC Newsnight he was “overwhelmed” by the support.
