Passenger slipped

A passenger at a Paddington station in London slipped on a pigeon waste, to which the man paid 28,000 pounds by Network Rail.
According to court documents obtained by the BBC, over the past five years, Network Rail has paid 290 million pounds of damages to 290 claimants.
The compensation was paid for the stumbling and falling of passengers at 20 railway stations in England and Scotland.

The highest amount of damages, ie £ 40,000, was paid to a person who slipped and broke his hip by slipping on a London Charing Cross due to a liquid.
Network Rail’s clams and insurance chief Philip Tharoor said they are a big company, with millions of people using their stations every day, some of them having problems.
