Frank Griffin, North Lanarkshire's leisure services convener, knows of a janny in his Croy and Kilsyth patch who owns a hamburger van, strategically parked outside his school at lunch times. Amazingly, it draws its power from the janny's house.

Charlie Gray, education convener, himself not averse to dishing out a bit of mustard, found the revelation "quite disturbing" and Murdo McIvor, head of provisionscontract services, advised that "steps should be taken".

This will come as a blow to the janny, the chip-loving kids and, not least, the janny's wife who runs the van.
