SHE has an impeccable 13-year track record as a childminder, and parents describe her as a one in a million. But that has not spared Kim Munro from the attentions of a zealous inspector -who has reproved her for not having ethnic minority or disabled dolls for kids to play with. Mrs Munro, 43, has also been berated by British Government officials for not celebrating different cultural events by cooking special meals.

But Stuart Mc William, 42, whose two-year-old daughter Ailsa is cared for by Mrs Munro in a village near Salisbury, said: "It is political correctness gone mad. I don't care whether my daughter plays with dolls which are white, black or yellow. What's important is that she is looked after properly."
