A teacher who slipped on a puddle of water at school was received £23,000 of taxpayers’ money in compensation, it was revealed today.

West Sussex County Council was forced to pay out nearly a full year’s salary after the teacher took them to court arguing that the council was responsible for their injuries.

The teacher claimed to have suffered ligament damage in the feet and ankle following the fall.
