A school in England has banned triangular flapjacks after a pupil was injured by one.

Dinner staff at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, were told to cut the treat into squares or rectangles following the incident.

It is understood that the triangular version was banned after one was thrown, hitting a boy in the face.

Essex County Council said the ban was "not a county council decision" but confirmed the incident and the decision on behalf of the school.

A spokesman for Castle View School said: "I can confirm that the texture and shape of the flapjacks were reviewed following an isolated accident last week."
