October 2012  

WOMAN FALLS FROM CASTLE DRAWBRIDGE
An elderly woman fell 15 feet from the drawbridge at Caldicot Castle into the dry moat below. The woman was taken to hospital but subsequently discharged. The drawbridge had been temporarily repaired following what was reported to have been damage by vandals. The Health and Safety Executive was called in to investigate.

FOOTBALL CLUB FINED AFTER ATTACK ON REFEREE
Caldicot Town Football Club was fined £250 after an incident in which the referee was punched in the head by a spectator during an Under 16s match against Maesglas in September. The attacker was subsequently given a police caution for common assault. The club apologised to the referee, who was forced to take time off from work with the after effects of concussion.
