Aren’t You Taking One Now?

The sports trust denies liability for Miss Maylin’s accident, and barrister, Peter Burns, argued that bouldering involves an “obvious risk”.

But in the witness box, Miss Maylin, who is seeking damages of up to £300,000, said: “I don’t take risks.”

Or is this another ‘no win, no fee’ compo case?

What made her do this activity, anyway?

She was on her third date at the XC climbing and skate park in Hemel Hempstead with a man she met on the internet

So much for ‘not taking risks’!

    Bouldering?

      It’s a thing. Not MY thing, I hasten to add!

    We need to get rid of this compensation culture especially for where there are known risks.

    Well of course bouldering is risky. You are essentially free climbing (i.e. no belays etc) so what do you expect, it is part of the fun. Sorry, kid but YOU are to blame. But if she were in an indoor facility, they are pretty red hot about being belayed and it is (or should) be made abundantly clear to anybody with an IQ in double figures or better. Mind you, she works with the Met Pol so not much danger of that…

      They don’t just reserve their dimmest for the beat, clearly!

    “…Miss Maylin, a former coroner’s officer who works as a civilian for the Met…”

    …And who has apparently never had to confront the possibility that a dead body might have become dead, because it has fallen from a height?

    Maybe that’s why they got shot of her: “Sarge, At first I suspected he’d been poisoned. Then I looked again at the room and noticed he’d been harpooned and hung from the electric light.”
