I always  thought that bell ringing was a nice hobby but didn't realise that it could be so dangerous.   You had better watch yourself Bellringer!       :o

 Yes Hugo, I saw that on the news last evening.

Safety is paramount but as with lots of activities, something can unexpectedly happen to catch you out. This situation is obviously one of those, and thankfully does not occur too often.
