Today's elf'n'safety gorn mad story -
FANS of JLS were stopped from putting up umbrellas as rain hit an open-air gig — because of “health and safety” concerns.
Stewards told spectators, who had paid £33 to get in, if they wanted to keep dry they could BUY waterproof ponchos.
The 6,000-strong crowd endured a two-hour downpour at the council-backed Open Air Theatre in Scarborough, North Yorks.
Fan Paige Taylor, 17, said: “It was ridiculous.”
Bra-fucking-vo. You buy tickets to an open air concert and you take your chances, perhaps checking the forecast before and making the decision to go for box fresh trainers or wear some old hike boots, maybe "opt" to "step out" in a waterproof jacket. What you don't do is take a massive golfing umbrella, block the view and risk having some poor sod's eye out just because you are made of sugar.
