Little wonder when you consider recent surveys such as Gocompare.com's, which found that only a fifth of parents know that it's illegal for children to travel without a car seat or booster seat until the age of 12. Even when children are put in them, 80 per cent are used incorrectly, according to the Transport Research Laboratory – the belts are too slack or not properly adjusted or the actual seat is unsuitable for the youngster's size or age.

Brian Viner: 'My punch bag keeps me fit – and I can belt it when I get an annoying email'

Accompanying me on a fleeting recent trip to the United States was my good friend Patrick, who was in health and fitness clubs in a pretty big way until he sold up a few years ago.
