Are we too paranoid about our children's safety?

Almost two thirds of people think it's more dangerous for children to walk to school now than it was 30 years ago, according to a poll carried out exclusively for Good Morning Britain

Fifty per cent of the 1,000 surveyed said traffic was their biggest fear, with 39 per cent citing stranger danger.

So why are parents too scared to let their children walk to school on their own? What age should we let them do it and what are the main dangers parents fear?
