OTT

I cant help feeling that the ‘powers that be’ are completely over the top in law making and sign posting. There is a 24/7 police presence at this site just off St James’ Square which would stop anyone from attempting to break in

Joe Public wouldn’t be scaling a fence here anyway and Sid Scally isn’t going to be bothered what the sign says. If he wanted to get in he would get in.DSCF1947

I think this is a legal nicety. Trespass is a civil offence for which you can be sued but not prosecuted. In this case it has been made a crime so that when they bang you up for climbing over the railings your solicitor can't argue the point. If you ever wake up feeling pedantic you could start using your blog to vilify any signs you come across saying "Trespassers will be prosecuted". Legally they can't be.
