Or perhaps there is another explanation for scaling the roof of a pub in such a reckless fashion

Safety blunder

Thanks to Jon Holloway for these photos of a man clambering up a roof with a pitch of about 45 degrees on "a very old pub in Chipping Sodbury".

He comments: "Not sure what he was doing but he had to reallign the tiles that had slipped after he was walking on them. No cones or tape to prevent pedestrians walking below."
