According to South Wales Argus, a WHITESNAKE fan is suing the Newport, Wales, United Kingdom council because she was injured after slipping and falling in a puddle of vomit while attending the band’s December 2011 concert in Newport.
Lindy Butcher, 39, who claims that she was not drinking at the show, tells the paper, “It was horrifying, you don’t expect to fall in someone’s vomit.”
As a result of the fall, Butcher claims to have suffered bruising and soreness to both of her knees, as well as muscle spasms between her ribs.
The Newport council says they did what they could to prevent this incident. “It would appear the presence of vomit was reported to staff by a member of the public,” a letter from Newport council’s legal representatives said. “One of the bar staff tried to call for a cleaner. However, it was extremely busy in the bar and cafe areas. In the absence of any detail concerning the actual whereabouts of the vomit and with so many people in the bars, it was difficult to pinpoint immediately where the vomit was located.”
