Two elderly women in the Essex area may be in line to receive injury compensation after tripping on paving stones outside the Laindon Centre.
Edna Baldes suffered a broken wrist and Linda Sharpe suffered cuts and bruises after falling on to the concrete outside the centre, which is owned by property company Collonade, the Essex Echo reports.
However, several months after the incident, both ladies claim that no effort has been made to repair the concrete.
"I can’t believe they have let this go on so long, with all the bad weather it’s even more important they fix the paving stones as it’s so slippery outside," Ms Baldes told the paper.
Local councillor Pat Rackley added that she would write to Collonade seeking an offer of injury compensation for people who have suffered accidents at the centre.
The Lincolnshire Echo reported recently that some GBP 750,000 has been paid out in injury compensation over the last five years in connection with poorly-maintained roads and pavements.
