Selkirkshire councillor Carolyn Riddell-Carre has provided people in Newtown with advice on health and safety, which could lead to changes in safety signage.

In a debate regarding how Scottish Borders Council must adhere to safety legislation, Ms Riddell-Carre commented that a safety course focused on the use of ladders is to be provided, reports the Selkirk Weekend Advertiser.

She told the news provider: "My own tips on ladder safety are as follows: if it’s shoogly, pull it out a bit; if it's still shoogly, get your husband to hold it; if it's really, really shoogly, hold the ladder yourself and get your husband to go up it."

Ms Riddell-Carre also mocked the extent and potential expenses of the health and safety policies by saying that the UK did not win two world wars by "ticking off health and safety requirements".

Her comments come after the Fltinshire Chronicle reported that Deeside College has collected a gold standard award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800610172-ADNFCR
