QWiltshire Police have been picking up truants from their homes and driving them to school.
Is this in an effective way of cutting truancy or a waste of police resources?
AI think this is a complete waste of police resources. The police should be there to stop real crime and not ferry kids to school.
It should be the responsibility of the parents and the school to tackle the issue together and not police.
QThere are an estimated 250,000 interns in Britain today with one in five being paid nothing and half receiving less than the minimum wage.
Is it all right that somebody works for a company without being paid if it helps them eventually achieve the career they want?

QFigures show the number of flight delays at UK airports has increased this year.
Have you ever experienced a major delay at an airport or any other nightmarish situations when travelling?
AYes, when travelling back from New York a few years ago my flight back to Stansted was delayed then cancelled. We then had to get a flight to Paris with a connecting flight to Heathrow and a bus to Stansted. We got home 12 hours later than planned – the luggage took a few more days.
