Council bans parents from public playgrounds?

It seems clear that the world has gone officially insane with "paedophile panic". Well I say "world" but what I really mean is Watford - although I fear others will follow suit soon.

Watford Council it seems have banned parents from entering the playground their kids are in without having a Criminal Records Bureau check first. Instead the parents must let approved "play rangers" supervise their children instead.

The playground says that Watford Council has ordered them to do, and he Council blames Ofsted and says it is following Government policy. Ofsted say the Council is talking bollocks.

The really worrying thing about this surely is that there are actually people in Councils who think like this? Did no one at the Council think for a second how absurd they were being?
