A father has called for ancient ruins to be made safer after his son “almost broke his neck” while trying to climb them.*sigh* Clearly, parent of the year…
He said: “There’s one sign that says ‘climb at your own risk’ on an English Heritage noticeboard but it’s obscured by a hedge and it’s pathetic.
“I don’t think it’s safe at all and some teenager will die some day from falling off. A health and safety officer needs to look at it and put something in place so it’s less dangerous.”Yes, save us, Health & Safety Officer, you’re our only hope!
English Heritage spokesman Phil Harper said: “We are aware of the incident. Our current signs make visitors aware of the danger of climbing on Minster Lovell Hall, but we are reviewing whether further measures are required.”A ban on visitors who can’t produce a valid MENSA certificate, perhaps?
