Did photo frame pose a safety issue?
I TAKE my hat off to Bid4Oban’s work and its innovative ideas to welcome visitors to the town.
Among its many initiatives was the installation of a ‘photo frame’ on George Street so people could take memorable selfies with a framed backdrop of the bay, Kerrera and Mull.
The only problem was that there were reports of people clambering over the railings to get behind the frame, thus putting themselves in danger of falling into the bay.
That said, I haven’t heard of anyone falling off the sea wall or being injured but it was prudent to remove it and consider a different location. After all, it wouldn’t have been beneficial for some of the more litigious scoundrels in our midst to fake an injury and sue Bid4Oban.
