    Is it a closed area due to the services exposed?
    Who would they sue for a natural release

    Was the outcome a reasonably foreseeable event? What experience & training do they have in assessing those risks?

    Interesting case.

    Yeah! it raises more questions than it answers that's for sure.

    Unless there was signage suggesting they couldn't go there you can't really blame the dudes. You would think there would be roads dept avi control work done in that area to ensure that doesn't happen.

    The fact that they immediately talk about getting nabbed by the police suggests perhaps it may be a no go area. Apart from that the did the right thing from that point for sure.

    Sounds like the prosecution is a bunch of Ned Flanders.

    It's the Daily Mail. Largely fiction.

    Yeah those comments thicken the plot.
    Knowingly trespassing and they're done

    I dont know the states in that way but it makes me think of the interdit areas around the mont blanc tunnel. No sense of humour with it
