Council paid GBP 220,000 compensation since 2003

Poorly-maintained pavements have cost a local authority almost GBP 220,000 in injury compensation claims in the last six years, it has been revealed.

West Sussex Council has paid out tens of thousands of pounds in compensation for Crawley alone as people trip and injure themselves on broken paving slabs, the Midhurst and Petworth Observer reports.

Claims have been made for accidents suffered in the Broadway and High Street areas of the town, as well as Titmus Drive in Tilgate, Buckswood Drive in Gossops Green and payout of GBP 7,500 for an injury in Queensway.

Crawley MP Laura Moffatt told the paper: "These payouts indicate a lot of pain and upset for my constituents.

"Surely prevention by maintaining the pavements would be a much better use of our money."

Campaign group Potholes.co.uk recently reported that the residents in North Curry in Somerset have produced a 12-page dossier designed to shame Somerset County Council into fixing its roads.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19250125-ADNFCR
