A schoolteacher remains off work with a split lip after an angry parent headbutted her because her son was "still hungry" having received insufficient bread and oil for breakfast, laid on as part of the school's Andalucía Day celebrations.

The child's grandfather had already come into the school earlier in the day to complain, but the mother arrived at the end of the school day to confront the teacher at Miguel Fernández primary school in Churriana.

Teachers' unions have leapt to the victim's support.
