A little girl in Britain is again allowed to blog about her school lunches.

Yes, really. School lunch officials "feared for their jobs" because she was photographing the godawful cafeteria food they were serving.

Cleland Sneddon, the executive director of community services at Argyll and Bute Council, told the BBC that school catering staff had been left "in tears" by press coverage.

He added: "Newspapers have a significant impact on public opinion. They have a significant impact on this particular staff group.

"If you had met with the staff at the school yesterday, the level of distress that was there - it was palpable. It was very significant for them. People were in tears. This was a culmination of a period of seven weeks of this level of coverage and we had to take some action to protect our staff."

However, Mr McCuish later told the BBC Radio 4's World at One programme that he had instructed senior officials to lift the ban immediately.
- Emphasis added.

The Never Seconds Blog has yet to reopen, however.
