The town of Grays is located in Essex, England, and falls within the Borough of Thurrock. Grays lies within a 20 mile distance to London on the northern bank of the River Thames. The town’s close proximity to the M25 motorway allows its economy to benefit from the Port of London and the Lakeside Shopping Centre in West Thurrock.
One of the earliest recorded visitors to Grays was Samuel Pepys, who stayed in the town in September 1665 and visited local fishermen to buy fish from their daily catch. Today much of the river front has been redeveloped and Grays Beach is popular with families, especially since the construction of the children’s playground.
Playgrounds can actually be dangerous places, no matter how well designed they are. The onset of frost in early autumn can make climbing frames hazardous playthings. Heavy rain fall the night before can turn sandpits into mud baths too dangerous for little mud larks to play in. While such hazards must be dealt with by sensible and responsible parenting, other dangers are hidden and no parent could foresee what harm they might cause. An unsafe climbing frame that collapses because of poor construction or neglect could be the cause of a tragedy.
A swing that should have had its chains properly fixed can result in serious injuries, if people responsible for the regular maintenance of the playground didn’t bother to carry out repairs.
If your child has had an accident on a playground that should have been safe, you can make an injury claim in Grays and demand compensation and justice.
