Health and safety signage for Bury St Edmunds' falling conkers

8th October 2010 | Warning Signs

Posted by Jason Nicholls

Health and safety signs have been erected in Bury St Edmunds' Abbey Gardens to warn passers-by of the danger of falling conkers.

The health and safety signage reads "Beware Falling Conkers" and urges pedestrians to proceed with care.

Abbey Gardens staff place the safety signs on a number of trees after two visitors were struck by falling conkers.

The signs will prevent further de-conkering - a practice that has already been put in place by a council in the Midlands.

Nottingham City Council workers recently used a high-rise platform to remove all conkers from a horse chestnut tree after a four-year-old girl was injured by a stick, which was thrown by a youth to dislodge the prized nuts.

The council has defended its decision to remove all the conkers, but has been accused of some critics of over-stepping the mark when it comes to the interpretation of health and safety laws.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800107075-ADNFCR
