Over half of Britain's working fathers want to cut their hours and play a bigger role in raising their kids, according to a new survey.

Despite a growing number of dads taking on more childcare responsibilities, the research by the Independent revealed that many still encounter prejudice.

Seven out of 10 fathers working part time said there was a stigma attached to it and 54% believe they are seen as weaker partner. The study says most of those who work part time are motivated by a desire to help raise a family, rather than having the decision foisted on them by a lack of work.
