No injury compensation yet for Redbridge pavement trip

A grandmother who broke her arms after tripping on a paving slab in Redbridge has yet to receive any injury compensation and says the pavement is still dangerous one year after the accident took place.

Cynthia Saggers has undergone months of treatment at the Whipps Cross University Hospital and fears that other people could suffer a similar fate, the Wanstead & Woodford Guardian reports.

Earlier in the year that paper found that one in three paving stones in Redbridge is in need of repair, one of the highest proportions in London.

"The pavements around here are in a bad state and yet the council hasn’t done anything about it," Mrs Saggers told the paper.

"I had to have an operation to free a trapped nerve in my arm and have not played bowls since the accident."

Councils in England have paid out an average of GBP 800,000 each in injury compensation claims relating to pavement trips over the past five years, figures from the Liberal Democrats have revealed.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19366682-ADNFCR
