We had no intention of mentioning the car park stairs ever again. That is, until we clambered to the top of the newly-painted stairs nearest Ashwood House yesterday, and discovered that there was no handle on the exit door. What’s more, there was a barrier the other side of it. So we had to go back down again. We’re not sure what this achieved other than to make us very irritated.
Yet again, it was a case of a signed emergency exit being blocked off. Though it’s hard to imagine a scenario where this would cause serious harm, the council wouldn’t have a leg to stand on if it did.
