They’re cleverly designed for tiny riders. But our four- to six-year-old testers were also interested in doing skids and playing with toy traffic cones

Peter I have read your piece on Hannah and David's murder. read this piece and revisit this will you. This police officer was shunted off the scene as he had evidence it was the village headmans family whom he was prepared to go after. http://englishnews.thaipbs.or.th/one-tourist-murder-suspect-now-arrested-another-run
In the interest of justice these 2 men need a fair trial not tainted by the comments of Hannah and Davids family who I doubt have followed this case. Will you  report this??
