Everybody knows that farming can be a dangerous activity, but who could have foreseen the freak accident caused by a 400 kilo bale of hay rolling 60 metres down a steep slope onto a main road and killing Mike Edwards, a founder member of Electric Light Orchestra.

As a result of the Inquest into that accident the Coroner will be writing to Health & Safety Executive asking for revised Guidelines to Farmers on handling hay bales on sloping ground. 

I have written an article about this subject in greater detail.
