Falls and accidents when shopping

Solicitors specialising in personal injury are warning shoppers to be extra aware of potential dangers of shopping.

David Urpeth from law firm Irwin Mitchell said: "Christmas time is an exceptionally busy time for shops and supermarkets. Some retailers fail to engage the proper resources to provide shoppers with a safe environment."

"Unfortunately, I represent many people who have been injured as a result of retailers not fully appreciating the need to keep the displays neat, walkways clutter free and spillages cleaned up."

"I urge shoppers to take greater care than normal at this busy time."
