Warning signs to stop BBQ dangers
Posted by Ben Alexander.
Warning signs have been installed on a common in Portsmouth to educate people as to the possible dangers of lighting barbecues.
Since March 2009 the lighting of barbecues has been banned on most of Southsea Common, but officials feel the message still isn't getting across, the Portsmouth News reports.
The council has used barbecue and barbecue-free zones, but the lack of a sufficient penalty has meant these areas continue to be used for the cooking of food.
"We felt the time had come to toughen up our stance on barbecues on the Common," councillor Lee Hunt, cabinet member for culture and leisure, told the newspaper.
Mr Hunt explained that possible dangers include the risk to young children and the possibility of trees catching fire.
"We will put up signs and issue leaflets, explaining all that," he told the newspaper.
Additionally, if a new byelaw is passed next year, fixed penalty fines of up to £80 will be issued to those who continue to flout the ban.
Recently, play areas in Pendle were set to receive warning signs to stop people smoking.
