Girl, 14, burnt in tanning salon

A health and safety investigation has been launched after a 14-year-old girl suffered burns over 70% of her body using an unstaffed tanning salon.

Kirsty McRae was put on a hospital drip after spending £4 for 19 minutes on a coin-operated sunbed on Monday.

Her mother Jill, from Barry Island, Vale of Glamorgan, said unstaffed salons posed "an enormous risk".

James Hadley, who owns Lextan, the salon which Kirsty used, said he was operating within the law.

Kirsty, who is on half-term, originally put £1 into a coin operated sunbed at Lextan, but felt she was not tanned enough, so paid another £3 for another 15 minutes.

I think that her daughters inability to heed the sign that banned under 16s from said tanning establishment posed as great a risk.

When are people going to start looking after themselves instead of finding scapgoats for their feckups?

So, an airhead gets turned a bit pink.

If you read the Dail Mail version (which is their headline schlock horror story) she was "...rushed to hospital with horrific burns...."

Now, given the true suffering of others, that is dreadful even by the low standards of the Daily Mail. :x

I doubt she will get compo she is 14 years of age she can read and write on the door was a disclaimer stating if you are under 16 you are not allowed to use the tanning salon. Just typical of this mum to blame the owner instead of her daughter .
i blame your mum, for getting raped by that smelly old tramp and not having an abortion.
