Case 174 - Custard Pie fight is cancelled

Issue

A custard pie fight at a local event has been cancelled because the event organisers could not get insurance on the basis that the activity is too dangerous.

Panel decision

What a pantomime! There are no health and safety reasons to stop a good old fashioned custard pie fight. It's hard to imagine what risks would render such harmless fun uninsurable.

We think this over the top risk aversion should be greeted with a big "boo!!!"
