Children at Braunston Primary School were left without milk after 54 cartons were stolen in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The milk was delivered at around 2am and by the time the school was opened it had disappeared.
The primary school published a statement on Braunston’s local community website, the Braunston Bugle. It says:“Following Government legislation schools are now required to provide milk for those children whose parents request it and pay for it.
“As the village school we are particularly saddened that this should have happened. We have now made different arrangements for the deliveries.”
