Quarry danger alert.

QUARRY owners are warning that children could be injured or even killed this summer because irresponsible adults break down quarry fences.

One quarry operator in Nuneaton is so concerned that it has gone to court to take a tougher stance against trespass.

Midland Quarry Products has been granted an injunction restraining two men from entering a disused quarry off Tuttle Hill.

The company took the case to court in desperation after a group of men repeatedly broke through security fences to ride motorbikes and shoot air rifles.

Today, quarry operators around the country launched their annual Play Safe, Stay Safe campaign.

Elizabeth Clements, director of communications for the Quarry Products Association, said today: "By cutting or breaking down fences to gain entry, a gap is left which provides easy access for youngsters and leaves them exposed to a range of potential dangers."
