A fifth of us are now so lazy that we walk for less than 15 minutes each day, a new study has revealed. And the reason? We're all hooked on driving. Research carried out by the College of Podiatry found that despite being well aware of how little we exercise - and even acknowledging the fact that we each should walk more - the temptation to jump behind the wheel rather than go by foot is almost always just too much to bare. The survey found that nearly half of Brits choose to drive to work, while almost 40 percent go by car to visit friends and family who live just a stone's throw away.

Podiatrist Emma Supple, from the college, said, "It is a shame to see that so few of us are failing to use our own two feet to get about. One in five parents drive their children to school despite more than a quarter saying their child's school is less than a mile away. Walking for just 30 minutes a day can bring so many health benefits; it is a great way to improve fitness gently and can be a suitable form of exercise for many people. The findings also suggest that we don't seem to be setting a good example for children, showing that walking can be a great way to travel."
