West Yorkshire school in court over climbing wall fall

A Bradford grammar school has been fined after a PE equipment manager suffered multiple fractures when he fell nine metres from a climbing wall.

A prosecution was brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) after inspectors identified serious safety failings at the school.

The court was told HSE found the management of the wall and the safety system regarding it was almost none existent; the competence of the staff using it and providing instruction to others was an after-thought and not effectively put in place.
