    Re: sacked

    It sounds like it's the sports day is at a museum, and it's them that have got cold feet about the risk assessment.

    That in turn will have been driven by their insurers, who will in turn have been influenced by the ambulance-chasing lawyers who are only concerned with looking after their own profits rather than the greater good of children's health and education.

    So in short, it's all Christopher Leigh's fault...

    Hope this helps....

    So the implication of what you're saying, is that the profits of the museum were at risk(higher legal costs), because children's parents would sue them if they were injured.

    Well wouldn't you advise them to put their own financial self-interest first...?

    Yes, particularly when the legal system holds them responsible for things that are not their fault.
