Girl, 3, wanders away from school

When faced with pork chops for her school dinner, three-year-old Leonie Terry was not a happy pupil. But instead of simply asking for something different, Leonie decided to take herself home for lunch almost half a mile away. She wandered out of the school gates and down the street towards her house before crossing four roads on her own. Leonie had walked around a quarter of a mile and was heading towards a busy dual carriageway when luckily a passer-by spotted her and escorted safely back to school. Now a major inquiry is under way to establish how a young child was permitted to walk out of a busy school at lunchtime. There's a news video on this page.
