Object lesson

Have your say

As you reported (8 December), the integrity of the Star Flyer in Princes Street Gardens has been ensured.

The safety, however, of its position and operation leaves a lot to be desired.

When the open chairs are elevated and spinning they are directly over the Princes Street pavement, meaning any dropped object could hit a pedestrian.

The advice to riders to hang on to their belongings is not, in my opinion, sufficient to guarantee the safety of those below.
