    Should ice cream vans be banned? (carltonhill Admin)

    Should ice cream vans be banned?

    Most ice cream vans are diesel engines, which release harmful chemicals like black carbon and nitrogen dioxide.

    The vans need to keep their engines running even when they are parked up because that's their only source of power.

    Without power from the engines, ice cream vans can't keep their freezers cool, or power their whippy or slush machines.

    The UK has a target of cutting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 80% by 2050.

    To help meet the target, the government has set up an ultra low emission zone. That means any van operating in central London can be charged up to £100 a day.

    With all the new rules and costs, ice cream vans are finding it harder to operate.

    What would you name this spider? (carltonhill Admin)

    Scientists have named a new type of spider after the stormtroopers in Star Wars.

    It's because the different species all look like each other - just like the famous soldiers in the sci-fi films.

    The new species are thought to be the very first bald-legged spiders ever spotted in Colombia, South America.

    What would you name it?
