Dear Sirs

I am somewhat concerned that the attached report ref the Lychett Minster school has not been taken seriously by the Devon County Council. In particular, the DCC have failed to provision over 500 schools with any Lightning Risk Assessment.

I am also concerned that Lychett School appears not to have learned any lessons from this particular lightning fire.

I am also very critical of this report which fails to identify serious flaws in the Lightning Protection of the ruined school at Lychett Minster.

I would like the opportunity to meet with your District Fire Chief to discuss this report in depth with the hope of improving safety fire standards at schools and public premises

with thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
