Parents who regularly drive children for sports or social clubs will have to be vetted or face fines of up to £5,000 under new rules

Along with parents who host foreign exchange students, they will fall under the scope of the Vetting and Barring Scheme, the Home Office has confirmed.
The measures to stop paedophiles are being introduced from next month in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Critics have branded them "insulting" and say they could deter volunteers.
A separate but aligned scheme is being set up in Scotland.
Also, anyone barred in any part of the UK will be barred from working with children and vulnerable adults anywhere else.
'Frequent, intensive'
Informal arrangements between parents will not be covered, but anyone taking part in activities involving "frequent" or "intensive" contact with children or vulnerable adults three times in a month, every month, or once overnight, must register, it has emerged.
