A woman who slipped in vomit during a Whitesnake concert is suing her local council after being injured by the fall and missing half the gig.
Lindy Butcher from Newport, Wales was walking to the bar at the concert at Newport Leisure Centre when she skidded on the vomit, falling on her knees in the sick.
Butcher claims she was not drinking at the gig, because she was planning on driving home, and she was wearing flat-soled shoes.
"It was horrifying," she told the South Wales Argus,
"You don't expect to fall in someone's vomit."
Although the 39-year-old was cleaned up with disinfectant and given the price of her ticket back, lawyer Andrew Collingbourne, managing partner of HBJ&W and Victorious said he believes the landlady may be entitled to compensation from the council.
He has agreed to represent Butcher in her bid for compensation, as the Whitesnake fan still struggles with sore knees and neck pain following the fall.
Her claim against the council also detailed muscle spasms between her ribs as a result of the accident last December.
Newport Council said it could not comment on the ongoing case.
Newport council’s legal advisers said that the vomit had been reported to a member of the bar staff, but because it was "extremely busy" in the bar, the cleaner had found it difficult to locate the puddle of sick.
