The metal barbecue had been left smouldering by its owners, despite them being asked by friends of her parents to put it out before they left.
Moments later Luii was among a group of children playing nearby, when she fell on to the red hot coals.Boy, I bet you've got some harsh words for your friends then, who saw the danger and didn't bother to tell you, or do anything about it themselves?
A traumatised Mrs Duncan, said: “I’m trying to block it out, but I want to warn people about the dangers of leaving hot barbecues in parks.”Oh. Silly me.
Self-employed Mrs Duncan said more needed to be done to stop something like this happening again.
She said: “There need to be more wardens around to enforce the rules. Next time a young child might be killed.”The wardens can't be everywhere, no matter how many they recruit.
And besides, I really don't want to fork out more council tax to recruit an army of council employees so people can leave their kids to run around parks without the need to trouble themselves about what they are getting up to...
What tribe is it that are trained to walk over hot coals?
I fucking HATE barbecues, wherever the fuck they are!
More chavvy fuckwittery and inconsiderateness,
So, on one of the hottest days of the year, it is thought the ideal activity is to stand in front of a bed of hot coals and burn several pieces of meat. Surely, this would make you even hotter than you were? When living in Berlin, where the winters would freeze the waters of the Havel, people would gather and have barbecues on the ice, which was so thick there was no fear of the heat melting it (in fact the East Germans used ice breakers on their part to prevent attempts to escape to the western part of the city). That made sense, as you were all wrapped up, the beer was cold and the heat from the BBQ was very welcoming. In summer though, why bother when you have an oven available to cook food? I'm with Anpon of 13.07 on this.
"What tribe is it that are trained to walk over hot coals?"
Diversity consultants..? ;)

When it's cooler, they are a nice way of enjoying an outdoor meal. But I've been to far too many bad ones to not be wary!

Yep! Baffling. This weather, cold salad and seafood is all I fancy.
"Self-employed Mrs Duncan said more needed to be done to stop something like this happening again. "
Calling your child 'Luii' is tantamount to stripping him of three A-levels at birth. Might as well call him "I'll spell that for you ell you eye eye".
Oh, little Luiiii is a girl, you say?
I hope that when she grows up, she realizes that her East Grinstead-style body art is thanks to the council not providing more wardens, not a lack of supervision by her parents.
Self-employed Mrs Duncan
I hope her accountant was reading... because naturally, while Duncan is happy to see all our taxes doubled, she'll probably not be wanting to she her contribution's increased.
