Squashed tomato proves expensive

On the day that Lord Young’s report into the “compensation culture” was published, Belfast City Council worker Lorraine Mallon agreed a settlement of £24,000 from her employer.

Dressed as a tomato, she was leap-frogged by the lord mayor, Mr Rodgers, suffering a slipped disc when his knee hit her head. Ms Mallon had been dressed like this to launch a gourmet garden event. The council must also pay the costs of the action.
