Bogus rules apparently implemented to prevent accidents in public places from occurring should not be allowed to spoil the UK's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
That is according to the government, which has called on people planning to throw events such as street parties to commemorate the Queen's 60th anniversary on the throne to challenge "jobsworths" who incorrectly cite health and safety regulations as a reason not to hold such celebrations.
The Health and Safety Executive's Myth Busters Challenge panel will be at the forefront of the battle against such restrictions by offering advice to people about some of the most common misconceptions of the law.
Eric Pickles, communities secretary, indicated this should help parties go ahead with the minimum of bureaucratic fuss.
"Unnecessary and irrelevant health and safety regulations should not be used as an excuse to prevent people to celebrate - the only red tape in sight should be the Jubilee bunting hanging in the streets," he stated.
