Great fun for all involved. And why not? Except that some cheese rolling events, which have been going on probably ever since the invention of cheese and hills, have been nixed by what's known in the UK as Elf'n'Safety (because, you know, someone could get bruised from running down a slope).

It's interesting that there was "a large police presence". Probably most of the coppers were happy to be there to police <whatever> as opposed to, say, traffic duty (which would have been more a useful, but presumably a less meaningful use of police time).

I love this quote.

In 2009, the injury toll of 18 was described as 'low' by St John Ambulance. Ten of the wounded were spectators.
