UK MP calls for bans on bouncy castles after 3 year old girl death

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sky News: An MP has called for bouncy castles in public areas to be banned temporarily after the death of a girl in Norfolk.

The little girl, who has not been named, was thrown 20ft in the air from the castle on Gorleston beach on Sunday morning.

She died of her injuries in hospital.

Robert Halfon, the Conservative MP for Harlow, Essex – where seven-year-old Summer Grant was killed when a bouncy castle blew free from its moorings in 2016 – wants politicians to consider a temporary ban.

He said on Twitter: “After two horrific tragedies, government need to look at update of regulations and inspection regime and consider a temporary ban on bouncy castles in public areas until we can be sure that they are safe.”

Mr Halfon has written to the speaker of the House of Commons requesting an urgent question on the matter on Monday.
