Stay away from building sites during school holidays is the stark warning to local children.
New home developments under construction may look like fun and exciting places to play, but Barratt Homes is warning children they also pose serious dangers.
Managing director Jon Green said: “Building sites are full of potential dangers and, as the school summer holidays are here, it is important to remind children and their parents of the need to stay away from them.
“Youngsters are often on the lookout for somewhere new and exciting to play, but construction sites are not adventure playgrounds. While our construction teams watch out for youngsters during the day and we secure our sites at night, we also ask parents to make sure they know where their children are during the holiday time.
It’s important to get youngsters thinking about the dangers that exist to emphasise the message they should stay away from building sites,”
