Britain raising 'couch potatoes'

4th May 2011

A new survey has suggested that Britain's children are likely to become a generation of couch potatoes who cannot swim, run or cycle.

A study of 1,500 children aged 6-15 found that 15% could not swim, 10% had not learned to ride a bike and one in four had never run a distance of 400 metres. Around half the children surfed the internet, chatted on social networking sites and played video games while a third said they did not even own a bike.
