LIVERPOOL DROPS SCHOOL REPAIR CASE

Liverpool City Council has abandoned a High Court appeal against an order to carry out repairs at a school after a case brought by schoolboys.

The council had lodged the appeal following a trial at the city magistrates' court last December. It was ruled that pupils at Childwall Comprehensive School ran the risk of electrocution due to water leaking into light switches and ordered the council to carry out immediate wiring repairs (LGC, 19 December 1997).

A council spokesman said it had withdrawn the appeal 'because we want to see some finality to this matter which has been costly and time consuming for all those who have been involved in it.'

The council had already carried out the repairs ordered by the magistrate, he said.
