Watch out... You might be hit by a falling gravestone!

Hands_greg Greg Hands MP has highlighted another manifestation of the health'n'safety culture that is crazily gripping too much of Britain.

The Times reports Mr Hands' FOI revelation that thousands of graves may have been moved by local authorities "because of fears that they could fall on gravediggers or members of the public."

Greg tells The Times: "People are 4,000 times more likely to be injured by a bendy bus than by a headstone in a graveyard, yet millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money are being blown on ripping down headstones.”
