    Could I have some help with this question thanks!

    Bilal, a builder, was replacing tiles on the roof of a building he was repairing, assisted by Ben. The pair were rushing to finish the roof before it rained. Robert was throwing the roofing tiles for Ben to catch, rather than passing the tiles from hand to hand, as recommended by the Roof Tilers’ Association.

    Ben failed to catch a tile thrown by Bilal and it fell to the ground 8 metres below, striking Patrick, a postman, on the shoulder and causing him injury. Patrick had brittle bones and his injuries were worse than a normal person would have suffered. Ben was in such pain from his injuries that he stepped into the road where he collided with a passing cyclist, Samuel. Samuel was on his way to work at the local fire station. He fell from his bicycle and was injured.

    Consider what liability in negligence, if any, Bilal and Ben have for the injuries sustained by Patrick and Samuel.
