Snow news is good news

I saw a story in the Independent last month, about a park warden who slipped on ice whilst putting up signs warning people to be careful when walking on ice.  The Daily Mail, of course, captured it best:

An ice little earner: £70,000 for warden who slipped and fell... while putting up 'beware of ice' signs

Having lived through three Atlantic Canadian winters, I can confirm that falling on ice is no laughing matter (except in this case).  From experience, the best way to combat the matter is to get some Yiktriks.

I was very pleased to read, therefore, that Leicester City Council purchased 150 pairs for their park employees.  And 'no similar mishaps have occurred since.'

It's still political correctness gone mad, though.
