CHILDREN from the Gainsborough area are being urged by police to play safely.
Following recent incidents of children witnessed playing on building sites, Lincolnshire Police are issuing a warning to children to ensure they are not putting their lives in danger by playing in ‘high risk’ areas.
Police inspector Nigel Storey said: “It is possible to have an accident anywhere but my question is why put yourself deliberately in harms way by playing in a high risk location.”
He added: “Children and young people need to remember that building sites are fenced off for a reason. The site machinery may resemble something they played with as a child but in inexperienced hands the machinery can be unpredictable and dangerous.”
