my friends little girl (in the video link above) tragically lost her life when one of the sides dropped down on its own, trapping her head and suffocating her, this is a known problem which has been acknowledged in the USA as they are now banned there, we are trying to get the same thing here in the UK

That's terrible.
I have a drop side crib over here and I've never heard of them being banned.
Scary

I actually did not know they were banned in the US and I looked it up, and you are indeed correct, they are banned. I will be signing your petition.
