LAS Callouts Up As People Fall

icypavement12Jan10.jpg The roads are pretty much clear but there's still ice on the pavements, which is leading to nearly twice as many fall-related calls as usual to the London Ambulance Service. First hand experience tells us hospitals are cancelling regular appointments to deal with the influx of broken bones as people go 'whoops!'. There's been no pavement gritting round us (how about where you are?), presumably because of the national salt shortage, and the thaw is taking a while to get properly going. If you're still afflicted by slippery sidewalks and you really can't justify working from home any more, here's some advice from Oklahoma on how best to deal with it. (Image / gazkinz)
