Leeds City Council housing officials have promised to look into security at Grayson Heights in Kirkstall where a 10-year-boy allegedly dislodged a heavy slab of concrete from the tower block roof, causing the death of an elderly passer-by, The Independent reports (p7).

Eric Bowen, director of housing services at Leeds, said that there had been some trouble throughout the summer holidays.

'What we will be looking at when we get more information is whether there are lessons to be learnt,' Mr Bowen said.

Staff at Leeds's housing department regard Grayson heights as having fewer problems than most of the 137 estates they control, with facilities in working order and public areas free of graffiti and debris, The Daily Telegraph reports (p7).
