Yesterday was the 22nd annual Playday, an event organised by the National Children's Bureau which celebrates the right of children to play. This year the theme was 'Our Place', with an emphasis on creating better places for children to live and play.
To coincide with the event, each year some research is commissioned to tie in with the chosen theme. Among this year's publications is a poll which found that half of all adults think it is unsafe to let a child play outside without supervision.
