An MP has called for a complete BAN on all bouncy castles and inflatables in all public areas after a child tragically died.
Although we agree that tragedies such as this cannot happen ever again, will a ban really help?
Please let us know what your thoughts are.
Sadly a 3 year old girl died after being thrown from an inflatable in Norfolk last Sunday.
This has unfortunately happened in the past after a 7 year old girl died back in 2016 in Harlow.
On that occasion the inflatable broke free in high winds and caused mayhem.
As a result, an MP has called for an “Urgent investigation” into the regulations regarding inflatables.
Is this just over protection or has MP Halfon got a valid point?
He told the BBC that,
“There should be a temporary ban on bouncy castles and inflatables in public areas until we can ensure they are safe!”
“You cannot risk a tragedy like this happening again.”
