(Photograph) - Car-crossed: Caroline Warren, from Derby, where the city's 60 school crossing patrols are now being trained in confrontation management, after more than 60 incidents in the past year involving angry drivers. Sarcasm and responding to abuse are out - calm explanations of why children need to cross are recommended instead. Photograph by JAMIE JONES
