The small French village of Seine-Port has voted to ban adults and children from scrolling on their smartphones in public.

The ban applies in shops, cafés, restaurants, parks, to parents waiting at the school gates… even if you’re just walking down the street!

Visitors who get lost are being encouraged to ask people for directions, rather than look at maps on their phones.

The village has also agreed a charter for families that stops kids using screens of any kind in the morning, in their bedrooms, before bed or at mealtimes.

I don't quite know but it is good when children try and cross the road but why do it in cafés, restaurants, parks, to parents waiting at the school gates… even if you’re just walking down the street!
