Legal Column. The Flight of the Cranes...

It was not stars that shone in the sky over Birmingham last Christmas but the lights of Christmas trees fixed to tower cranes which swung over the building developments gradually springing up in the city. Few passersby walking underneath these enormous cranes appreciate the legal difficulties which tower cranes can pose for the owners of the sites being developed and for the builders using the cranes.
