Child injured at bonfire site morning after bonfire.

This is an interesting case. Mr Justice Stephens accepted the novel Defence of the local Authority that they were prevented from accessing a Bonfire site (which was clearly their property) to make it safe, due to the threat of intimidation/violence from those at the site of the smouldering bonfire.

Unfortunately a 12 year old child suffered a very serious eye injury from a firework left at the site. His case was dismissed. You can access the Judgement here: [2012]%20NIQB%2054/j_j_STE8508Final.htm
