Concrete wall behind catch fence at Le Mans

In the aftermath of the Loic Duval accident in practice a photographer visited the scene and took the image below. I find it hard to believe that a circuit inspection did not pick up the fact that a concrete wall was located behind the catch fence at 90 degrees to the circuit. 

Where does the responsibility of the stewards and circuit inspection teams begin and end with a circuit such as LeMans and should something be done to improve the inspection process to include structures behind or close to catch fencing.
