While we love to complain about the weather, it’s rarely about anything serious. Some drizzle here, or some mugginess there is about the extent of it. But last month, the locals of Lincolnshire contended with more dramatic conditions, as what was described as a ‘mini-tornado’ ripped its way through a children’s funfair.
The annual Friskney Village show was going well until freak winds and torrential rain hit. The icing on the cake was ‘a sudden gust’ lifting an inflatable slide 30 feet into the air and blowing it away. The owner assured the press that all the inflatables, including two bouncy castles, were securely fastened. Nonetheless it proved too much for the slide, which was filmed taking off, and was later found on a nearby road.
Luckily, no one was hurt in the incident. In fact, people were so committed to making the most of the funfair that they carried on once all the trouble blew over. (See what we did there?)
An organiser of an event involving inflatables can be held legally liable for any injury or property damage. For more information on how to manage the various risks around inflatable structures at events, please click here.
According to a recent survey carried out by the Environment Agency and the AA, nearly half of drivers aged 65 and over would be willing to drive through a flood, putting themselves and their vehicle at risk, rather than turn around and find a different route.
Most of us are familiar with the warm orange glow of street lighting. The lamps are lit with sodium bulbs, which work by passing an electric current through a tube containing solid sodium. The reaction produces large amounts of heat and light.
This office is definitely not one for claustrophobics. Danish creative director Jonas Hallberg has renovated an old trailer into his own shabby-chic mobile office, meaning he can work wherever he likes.
