60 per cent of children aged 4-11 never play out on their local street

New research commissioned by UK walking charity, Living Streets has revealed that 60 per cent of children aged 4-11 never play out on their local street according to their parents – up from 50 per cent a decade ago.

The YouGov poll asked parents with children aged 4-11 whether their local street was a safe and welcoming place that their child could enjoy, over a third (36%) disagreed.
