Dan Aid petitions Downing Street

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

Christina Anderson, members of her family and representatives of the body piercing awareness group ‘Dan Aid’ went to London to hand in a petition to No. 10 Downing Street. Their petition calls for local authorities to use the powers they have to help make body piercing safer.

 

The campaigning group ‘Dan Aid’ was set up following the tragic death of Christina’s son Daniel Hindle of heart failure in 2002. His death followed complications after contracting septicaemia brought about by having a lip pierced. The ‘Dan Aid’ group work to raise awareness amongst young people and adults of possible health risks and dangers of body piercing.

 

Accompanying the delegation was local MP Meg Munn who said:

 

‘I first met Christina in 2003 following Daniel’s death and have been campaigning for stricter regulation of body piercing ever since. I was successful in amending the Local Government Act to allow local authorities to regulate body piercing outlets within their jurisdiction. This petition is to encourage local authorities throughout the UK to implement and enforce the by-law and avert another tragedy.’

 

In Daniel’s home city of Sheffield, the local authority was one of the first to adopt the by-law requiring body piercing shops and tattooists to be regulated by the local council.
