Last week, we covered cruelty in nursery rhymes. Whilst we can all agree many have dark themes, most of us grew up hearing them and they help us to understand some of the dangers that lie out there in the world.

On the back of the story we asked for your thoughts on nursery rhymes and fairy tales and whether there is too much horror in them.

Just over 89% of you thought that they are fine for children, so we can carry on reading them as usual. Nearly 11% said they are too harrowing.
