The parents of a little girl who was seriously injured when she was blown away on a giant inflatable in Fife three years ago have stepped up their calls for tighter safety regulations.
Summer Wroniecki, who was just six at the time, was hurled into the air when the bouncy slide she was playing on was caught by a gust of wind at Cupar Children’s Gala in June 2015.
Her parents Chris and Karen have now called for tighter safety rules after a spate of similar incidents.
Chris, 45, said: “What I would like to see is a legally-required piece of equipment attached to these inflatables that is calibrated to measure wind speed.”
An HSE spokesman said: “The HSE will continue to work with the relevant stakeholders to improve health and safety standards across the fairground and entertainment industry, including inflatable devices, to ensure that risk is managed in a proportionate and effective manner.”
