HSE inspects Suffolk wood where tree killed boy
An HSE investigation is now underway at Suffolk
Coastal Council's 15-acre woodland, The Grove,
Felixstowe, the location of the accidental death
of 3-year old Benjamin Davey who was struck by a
falling tree while walking with his mother on a
District councillor Dot Paddick opined that
Suffolk Coastal Council should have acted as
Anglian neighbours Ipswich did by closing all
parks and open recreational areas during recent
inclement weather. "The Council has a duty to
protect its residents and I cannot understand
why the Grove and other parks were not closed
during the storm. These places could have been
closed as a precaution, just for one day."
The Grove is presently closed on account of the
number of fallen trees and HSE' s investigation
will focus on the condition of the tree in
question, and if there were significant signs of
rot should the Council not have had the
foresight to have felled it and others which
posed a hazard to the public who have made
allegations concerning the condition of other
trees and a lack of guard rails at bridges, at
ditches and streams.
