Published: 27th June 2024

Our client was walking through Barnsley Town Centre. The defendants (Virgin Media) were carrying out promotional work in the town centre. This included displays of flags that were attached to metal poles. It was a windy day, and the flag came loose from the metal pole, striking our client.

Our client sustained soft tissue injuries to her knee and ankle. A claim was made against Virgin Media. They accepted liability. The client was awarded £3,000.
