Topic - Cotswold wont sell more than 6 meters of rope!

james wardle - on 15 Aug 2012
Went in to Cotswold today to buy some static rope, only to be told:

"yes we have static rope by the meter but we aren't allowed to cut more than a 6 meter length, its against regulations and we aren't qualified to cut it and the training course is really expensive."

very curious, so I went to Go Outdoors where they also are not qualified but are happy to cut any length of rope

Health & Safety gone mad, or am I missing something?
