Barnet's dodgy pavements

The Barnet Press reports that Barnet has some of the most dangerous pavements in the country. Nearly £1.8 million compensation has been paid by the council to people injured in tripping accidents in the last 5 years alone.

Over the same period, councillors have awarded themselves nearly three times as much in allowances and perks.

Of course, if Councillor Tambourides didn’t park on the pavement, perhaps there wouldn’t be so many broken flagstones in the borough?

Personally I think if pedestrians can sue for uneven pavements, car drivers should start suing councils for uneven road surfaces. The combination of pot holes and speed humps wrecks the suspension.
