Calls are being made for more primaries in Glasgow to adopt a sports initiative that has “transformed” the health of youngsters in a Scottish school.

Sports leaders and public health officials in Glasgow would like to see more pressure exerted on primary schools to introduce the Daily Mile, where youngsters walk or run a mile every day.

The 15-minute initiative was pioneered at St Ninians Primary in Stirling in March 2012 and despite rising obesity rates across the UK, the school says no pupils are overweight and have described the effects as “transformative.”
