Your piece on 23 July, "Brittain hits out at decision to ban exercising in the dark in Newmarket" is factually incorrect.
HSE has not issued a directive that will ban trainers from exercising horses in the dark from October. The incident at a crossing in Newmarket in December 2006, was reported to us, but we did not formally investigate it as it did not meet our selection criteria.
