Man sues Wicksteed Park for £250k

Man sues Wicksteed Park for £250k

Personal injury compensation of up to £250,000 is being sought by a man who sustained a broken ankle during an accident in a public place.

According to the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph, Mark Simpson suffered a fractured ankle, as well as whiplash and knee and wrist injuries, when he was thrown into the air while riding a water chute at Wicksteed Park in Kettering in May 2011.

The 51-year-old claims he was flung out of the attraction when it got stuck on a ramp and was hurt despite the fact he landed back in his seat.

Consequently, Mr Simpson is taking legal action against the park - which was established in 1913 - by suing it for as much as £250,000 in a case at the High Court.

His writ states that officials at the venue were negligent as they failed to warn him of the dangers of disembarking the ride at that point.
