    It's just a load of rubbish, the council want to save money - claiming H&S issues is just an excuse.

    Sky's own installers claim they can't go in roof spaces to feed cables through, saying it's an H&S issue - in reality, it's because they don't want claims for ceiling damage which their insurers wouldn't cover.

    I've done an H&S course this year, still waiting for my certificate to arrive, but almost everything you hear about it is totally untrue.

    There should be a law against making excuses like that.

    Reminds me of the infamous case where a burglar was awarded a few hundred thousand because a roof tile dislodged and made him fall from the roof of the house of which he was trying to climb into an upper floor window. :D Not sure how true that actually is, but I heard a rumour :p
