Leicester City Council is potentially up against a fine of up to £70,000, after a park warden injured himself while installing safety signage.

The man in question was fitting signs in a city park in order to warn the public to be careful in the ice and snow, but then slipped, injuring multiple areas of his body. After making a compensation claim to the authority, the council has said it will settle the case outside of court.

City mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said: "It's important the council takes its responsibilities to staff and members of the public seriously, while not going health and safety mad."

Mr Soulsby continued by saying that councils and large organisations are often targeted by lawyers who persuade them to make claims.

The importance of health and safety was recently underlined by Bibby Consulting and Support's Michael Slade, who claimed that firms should consider the risks involved in their industry.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801316100-ADNFCR
