"Britain's health and safety culture is discouraging children from 'roaming the countryside', Sir David Attenborough said yesterday. He said Britain risked losing the next generation of naturalists because of unfounded fears over safety.

'Fear and laws ruining fun': Sir David warned that the next generation of naturalists was being deterred from observing nature

He added that children had become 'out of touch' with their own environment and were likely to know more about exotic animals than those domestic to the UK. 'I dare say they know more about East African lions and game than they do about foxes,' he said."
