Homes: Children warned to stay off building sites.

HOUSEBUILDER Barratt is urging children to play safe this summer by avoiding building sites.

With 20 developments across South Wales the warning comes just as all schools across the region have broken up for the long summer holiday.

Explaining the problem, Jonathan Twamley, construction manager at Barratt South Wales said, ``Children are naturally attracted to all sorts of places that are `out of bounds', with building sites seeming to hold a variety of opportunities for adventure.

``What they fail to see are the hidden dangers and while we do all we can to ensure site safety we would also urge parents to emphasise the message at home. In short, building sites are for builders - not for children.''
