Childhood memories of climbing trees or making daisy chains are becoming increasing rare, according to a new survey, as the younger generation are deprived of outdoor experiences.

The survey of 1,000 people found that the current generation of 15 to 34-year-olds have fewer memories of 12 key countryside pursuits such as swimming in rivers or making a den.
