Pileup leads to council compensation claims

Leeds city council may become the subject of multiple car accident compensation claims after several people were seriously injured on the A61.

Victims claim the council failed to erect warning signs for the roundabout at Alwoodley Gates, leading to tailbacks over a mile long and eventually to a pile-up on the road, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.

One 25-year-old man from Harrogate was left paralysed after the incident, which took place in 1997 at an alleged accident blackspot.

However, the council has denied accusations of negligent planning.

"We can confirm that the council is denying any liability for this accident and, as legal proceedings are currently ongoing, we are unable to comment further at this time," a Leeds city council spokeswoman told the paper.

The Yorkshire Evening Post also reported this month that a Leeds grandmother has won compensation from the council after being driven from her home by antisocial neighbours.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19133881-ADNFCR
