WEST Cornwall MP Andrew George turned milk monitor on a visit to a local school.

Youngsters at Gulval were surprised to find Mr George handing out their daily milk as part of World School Milk Day.

Gulval County Primary was one of thousands of schools across more than 30 countries which took part in the event.

In the UK, school milk is free for children in day care or primary education under the age of 5 and subsidised for school children aged 5 to 11.

Ian Fellows, head teacher at Gulval School, said: "Where would we be without milk? It is one of the fundamental building blocks for healthy teeth and bones.

"It is wholesome, nutritious and helps our energy levels throughout the day."

Mr George said: "I am pleased to see that school milk is making a comeback."
