Health And Safety Inspector Falls From Ladder

HEADLINE of the Day, in the Tabloid Telegraph: “Health and safety inspector falls off ladder.”

A health and safety inspector had to be rescued by firefighters after he fell from a ladder while he was carrying out a risk assessment.

Before we fail this under “Beyond Parody”, let’s investigate further.

Peter Timberlake, a spokesman for Friends Provident, who were employing the inspector to investigate their buildings at Clyst St Mary, near Exeter, tells us:

“He suffered cuts and bruises but otherwise was unharmed and we wish him well in his recovery. We will be carrying out a full assessment of how this happened.”

Pass the ladder…
