Girl fractured skull in slide fall

A five-year-old girl fractured her skull when falling from a slide after Stockport Council ignored warnings from safety inspections, a report has found.

Ella Reger lost her balance and fell from the top of the two-metre high slide at Clarendon Road Park, in Hazel Grove, Stockport, Manchester, in September 2012.

The family's lawyer commissioned a report by an independent consultant which highlighted "a significant risk" of injury to children.

The council said it is aware of the case but could not comment for legal reasons.
