Banned By The State V - Football Boots

Those who lie awake at night troubled by the danger to life and limb posed by football boots can now rest easily - the State is on the case.

Children on a football training course at Bedonwell Primary School in South London have been banned from wearing them on the grounds that they are dangerous. Intriguingly, trainers are banned as well, and children are ordered to wear plimsolls instead.

Plimsolls provide the instep with no protection at all, and you need studs if you're going to run around on a wet pitch.

Which probably means that kicking and running are next on Bedonwell's hit-list.
