UK society 'condemning' children


The charity Barnardos says children are being demonised by the public. More than a third of the adults they questioned agreed with the statement that the streets were "infested" with children. Barnardos have made a TV advert based on their findings which Education Correspondent Kim Catcheside showed to some teenagers in Birmingham to get their reaction. Martin Narey, chief executive of Barnardo's and David Fraser, author and former senior probation officer, debate whether the public are right to perceive children in this way.
