Trap for trespassers

Any one no the legal position on setting traps for trespassers would it be legal if I had sign posting up but hidden in the woods cause I am aware that you need to have signs up alerting thieves that you have CCTV in operation but what about deadly traps.

No legal way to do it, at the worst people will argue that a mentally handicapped person can fall in the trap.

Don't! You would be in terrible trouble and the trespasser would win damages.
