School taught lesson by Derby Crown Court

Repton School admitted safety failings at Derby Crown Court after a 68-year-old lady fell down a step on an unguarded stairway after visiting to watch her grandson play football.

The investigation concluded that she had fallen while stepping from a wooden staircase that had a handrail to a stone staircase. The school, which was fined £10,000 and ordered to pay £534 costs, has now fitted handrails to the unguarded edge.
