Seat on a slippery slope

Bedlam Humour

Ed Goldstraw from Leek in Staffordshire has sent this article from the local paper, the 'Post & Times.'

Seat on a slippery slope...
IS THIS a new seat of leaning?

Retired engineer Mick Barr couldn't believe his eyes when he saw how this new bench had been installed in Brough Park, Leek. It sits at a sharp angle, matching the steep slope leading from the park up to St Edward's Church.

Mick, aged 74, who lives in Leek, told the Post & Times, "When I first saw it, I thought the council would come back and reset it level, but it's been left at an impossible angle.

"Surely it would have been simple to dig out a level base in the first place. Anyone who is infirm could have trouble sitting there. It's one of the steepest banks in the park."

A spokesman for Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, which is responsible for the park, told the Post & Times that the seat would be reinstalled on a level base as soon as possible.

He said, 'We have replaced a number of worn seats and provided four extra ones at the request of the Friends of Brough Park.

"For reasons which are not yet clear, our contractors placed this one at an angle.

"We have asked them to level the base this week."
