No Wedging Allowed

The suit was in regard to the breach of security caused by wedging open the fire door, but I thought this was kind of interesting:

From the Southwark News…


26 January 2011

A Borough resident will have to learn to ‘shut that door’, otherwise she will be breaching a bail condition imposed on her last week.

Angelica De Castro e Silva found herself in court due to a dispute with a neighbour over a fire door in their block.

The 34-year-old has been accused by her neighbour of repeatedly wedging open a fire door, which led to an alleged assault and criminal damage on November 17 last year.

The defendant, of Southwark Bridge Road, denies both allegations and was released on bail provided she no longer wedges the door open, and she makes no contact with her neighbour.

De Castro e Silva will return to Tower Bridge on February 10 when her case will next be heard.

    It’s a shame that they take the effort to mention that it’s a fire door and not use that opportunity for a little fire safety education as well. It would also be in the accused person’s interest to keep that door shut.
