British children are more familiar with being strapped into a car seat than putting on a pair of trainers and going for a walk, according to national charity Living Streets at the launch of Walk to School Week (21-25 May). 

Research shows that the number of children travelling to school by car over the past 20 years has doubled, with the proportion of children walking to school reaching its lowest level ever. Just 47% of primary school-aged kids now walk to school, with the figure falling to a paltry 36% amongst secondary school pupils.
