Modern day park rangers and more visible policing are needed to tackle the bullying of children outside school, the Conservatives said this week. Fear of bullying and crime has led to a sharp drop in the number of children playing outside, Tory leader David Cameron said. Speaking at the launch of the party's second Childhood Review document, he called for action so that children felt safer. The review was set up after a report last year from Unicef, the United Nations children's charity, judged the UK to be the worst place to be a child out of 21 developed countries. Mr Cameron also called for more access to sport and other activities, so pupils mix more with children of different ages and backgrounds.
