Local authority not required to warn against obvious risks
Edwards v London Borough of Sutton  EWCA Civ 1005, 12 October 2016
This was an appeal by a local authority against a decision that it was primarily liable for Mr Edwards’ injuries under the
Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957. Mr Edwards had been pushing his bicycle across a path over a small ornamental footbridge in
a park, which was more than 100 years old and had a low parapet about 26–30 cm high. He fell over the parapet onto the rocks
in the water below and sustained serious injuries.
