However, the people of Brockworth were not going to take this lying down. The ban was defied and the event went ahead as usual, in spite of official efforts to stop it happening.
How many people were injured, I don't know. Judging by past years there were probably several injuries of varying severity, but at least they knew what they were doing and took the risk for a bit of fun and frivolity, all too sadly lacking these days. Well done, lads!
