funniest bit is they only did that tree because of the accident
are the other trees at ground level so the conkers don't need sticks thrown at them

I guess it's yet another case of a council being scared of being sued, with the way people look for compensation all the time. It's nothing to do with Health & Safety Law.

Well the laws are stupid but if you fall on a conker and it's been shown that the council have not attempted to remove the conkers from the road, you can sue.

It's not the Law that's stupid it's the stupid ambulance chasing lawyers and their money-grabbing clients who do this sort of thing.
