The law On Leaving Children Home Alone 

The law doesn’t say an age when you can leave a child on their own, but it’s an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk. Use your judgement on how mature your child is before you decide to leave them alone, eg at home or in a car.


Click Here <<< for information from The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)
  • children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time
  • children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight
  • babies, toddlers and very young children should never be left alone
Parents can be prosecuted if they leave a child unsupervised ‘in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health

Are you driving in France? There are new rules on vehicle emissions



If you're planning to drive to or through France via Paris, Lyon or Grenoble, beware, new rules mean you're likely to need to display a vehicle emissions sticker on your windscreen, while older cars could be banned altogether at certain times.

The three French cities have introduced the 'Crit'Air' scheme, which is designed to curb pollution and requires most vehicles driving within designated 'environmental zones' to display a window sticker (known as avignette).
The stickers cost €4.80 (around £4.13), including postage to the UK. There are six categories of sticker, which are colour-coded according to how much vehicles pollute and range from the cleanest (Crit'Air 1), for electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles, to the most polluting (Crit'Air 6).

INCREASE IN STATE PENSION RETIREMENT AGE BROUGHT FORWARD



Six million people in their early 40s will have to work a year longer, as a result of a change in the State Pension Age, the government has announced.

The rise in the pension age to 68 will now happen in 2039, rather than in 2046 as was originally proposed.
Those affected are currently between the ages of 39 and 47.
