'Don't turn our leisure centre into a retail park'

More than 100 people gathered outside a leisure centre in Cornwall this morning to fight against plans to turn it into a retail park.

Cornwall man wins £6 million damages after fall

An RAF officer from Cornwall who suffered crippling injuries when he dived head-first into a shallow ball pond during an It's a Knockout-style fun day is due to up to £6 million damages after a High Court ruling. The money will pay for the huge cost of his daily care.

Senior Aircraftman, Robert Uren, from South Tehidy near Camborne, was 21 and at the start of the Air Force career he had dreamed of when he was paralysed during what his lawyers described as a "silly, childish, game".

The July 2005 charity event at RAF High Wycombe, saw competitors dive into a blow-up pool filled with plastic fruit. The dangers of entering head-first were not discussed in the risk assessment.

This may simply be one occasion when unfortunately a full and adequate risk assessment was simply overlooked. ... This was a responsibly organised day that, sadly, ended in a tragedy that could and should have been avoided."

– Mr Justice Foskett, presiding judge
