Sinead Moriarty: Child-free section on planes? Now that could fly

WE'VE all been there, stuck on a flight beside a screaming baby. It's no fun. No one wants to be in that seat. I once sat beside a small baby on a flight to LA and it screamed for almost the entire eight hours. I almost lost the will to live but I still don't think the child should have been thrown into the hold along with the luggage, like Jeremy Clarkson has suggested.

Clarkson, the 'Top Gear' presenter, is no stranger to controversy; in fact, he seems to thrive on it. He has once again caused a very strong reaction by suggesting that babies should be put in the luggage hold on flights.

Clarkson had just flown to Scotland when he tweeted: "When will British Airways realise that babies belong in the hold?"
