The government is to look again at how a new vetting system for those working with children will operate.
England's Children's Secretary, Ed Balls, said it was "tremendously important" to define "frequent or intensive" contact correctly.

He has asked the chair of the new Independent Safeguarding Authority to review this and report by December.

Critics including the NSPCC have said the scheme could stop normal behaviour such as giving lifts to sports clubs.
