Subject: Trespassers Won’t Be Prosecuted
Venue: Mercers’ Hall, Ironmonger Lane, London EC2V 8HE
Speaker: Stuart Wortley, Partner – Eversheds
Urban explorers continue to present challenges to the security industry particularly in relation to tall buildings and major construction sites in London. Stuart Wortley of Eversheds Sutherland has unrivalled experience in this field having obtained over 25 injunctions from the High Court to restrain trespass since 2018. His team also advised on the 2 leading cases of contempt of court arising from such cases – including the case which resulted in George King-Thompson being imprisoned after climbing The Shard in July 2019. Stuart will discuss the problems associated with urban exploring in 2020.
