Kiplingcotes Derby in danger amid health and safety costs

The Kiplingcotes Derby may be at risk of folding as a result of increasing health and safety costs.

Race trustee Guy Stephenson told the BBC that £200 had to be spent on warning signs this year, as well as £227 for liability insurance. Also, the race's rules mean that if it does not run one year, it is not allowed to be scheduled again.

"It's costing us a fortune really. It's all about health and safety. It means we've got to go out and get sponsors these last two years, but whether we can keep doing that I don't know," Mr Stephenson told the news provider.

The derby covers four miles and takes riders through many farm lanes and tracks.

Last year, the Leader reported that health and safety concerns led to the cancellation of Wrexham's annual Christmas market.

The event was set to include 70 stalls and attract thousands of shoppers.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801320528-ADNFCR
