That is why I included the official statement as released by the police who responded to the accident. It is not based on media speculation, it is a statement -- signed off by a local Inspector -- outlining the basic details of what happened. Not how much further up the food chain it needs to be for you. Do you want the Police Commissioner to go out there to confirm they were climbing? Read the statement again...
