The Essex Echo report:
PARENTS tried to claim more than £10,000 in compensation after a youngster fell over on wet grass at a school.
The claim at Holt Farm Junior School, Rochford, was one of 79 lodged by staff and pupils at Essex schools in the past three years. It was unsuccessful.
Essex County Council set aside nearly £800,000 for claims made over those three years, a Freedom of Information request found.
