Podcast: Face coverings in schools, lorry smashes and cricket success

Face coverings will become ‘part of the uniform’ for some secondary school pupils in Kent.

The government says only those under local lockdowns have to use masks in corridors and communal areas – but headteachers elsewhere can make their own decisions.

We hear from Steve Chalke, founder of Oasis Community Learning, which runs two schools in Medway and Sheppey.

Also in the podcast: a man is calling for heavy lorries to be banned from his village after his home has been hit eight times in a year, and we hear from England’s Zak Crawley following his recent cricket success.
