ALMOST £400,000 has been paid out to pedestrians in two years for slip and trip injuries in Glasgow.
Almost a quarter of the claims made to Glasgow City Council have involved falls caused by road and pavement craters, with most of the £389,992 paid out for those incidents. Dozens more claims involving potholes are still ongoing.
Last year a 74-year-old woman fractured her foot after stumbling on a 3ft wide pothole in the city centre. The crater had been reported to Glasgow City Council nine days earlier.
