Playground Anger

Norwich Evening News: Anger as kids hurt on newly refurbished playground equipment

The design brief said "Refurbish local playground". By the time it got through all the committee stages, it had somehow become "install army surplus killer robots". Easy mistake to make

Great to see the kid getting in the spirit, dressing as an extra from Mad Max III

Isn't Jamie Cullum a bit old for playgrounds?

Seems to me if parents want to wrap their kids in cotton wool (and other forms of sterile dressing), the council are only to happy to oblige! I've seen badly installed play equipment, and it's not good.
Mind you, a few weeks of grinding along the kerb edges by the sk8r-boiz and the razor sharp concrete should be taken care of.

That's a kid he's at least 8 feet tall!
