Horsham Police To Seize Freerunners
Free runners in Horsham town centre should be ‘seized by police and prosecuted’, according to
Brian Donnelly (Horsham's cabinet member for finance and assets).
Parkour, which involves negotiating between obstacles by climbing or jumping, is set to be banned in public spaces in the town centre under a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) approved by Horsham District Council September 7.
The order also covers anti-social drinking of alcohol, anti-social use of vehicles and horse-drawn vehicles, control of dogs, and dog fouling across the district. Anyone found guilty of breaching the PSPO without a reasonable excuse could be fined, or issued with a fixed penalty notice.
It seems, as ever, an overreaction to lump free running into the same category as dog shit and horse drawn vehicles.
Additionally, does anyone envisage a police officer ever being able to catch ("seize") a freerunner?
This is simply another unnecessary, unenforceable law. In the event the freerunners cause damage we have laws such as trespass, criminal damage etc that can deal with them.
