Fjords in centre of town

LIKE your contributor, I wondered about differing attitudes to safety when I was in Bergen, Norway recently, writes A. Overton.

There the waters of the Fjords are right in the centre of the town with Restaurants and bars all around, but there is little fencing of the waters edge.

Basically a rail line

In fact along large stretches there is only a steel up stand—basically a rail line—even near to the Ferry/Bus interchange.

I venture to suggest that falling into those waters are an even greater risk to life than our canals!
