On the day of the accident, Mr S was working with the company at a beer festival. He was standing at the top of a ladder and with a colleague was attempting to connect two poles to make the main frame structure for a marquee.

As he was doing so, he lost his balance on the ladder, which he says was not being held by his colleague. He dropped one of the heavy poles and fell approximately 8 foot to the ground, landing awkwardly on his arm.

Mrs J and her daughter were visiting a hotel where Mrs J’s daughter was due to get married. They were descending some steps that led down to the hotel’s gardens, when Mrs J slipped on a green substance, believed to be algae, which had accumulated on one of the steps. Her right foot slipped from underneath her and she fell, suffering a fracture dislocation of her left ankle. Mrs J had to undergo surgery on her ankle to have a plate and screws inserted to stabilize the fracture and she spent 6 days in hospital. She then had a course of physiotherapy.
