Payout for fish and chip worker
Harry Ramsden's
The Harry Ramsden's company had denied any wrong-doing
A worker with fish and chip firm Harry Ramsden's has been awarded almost 50,000 in damages after falling from an unsecured ladder.

John Campbell fell 20ft after being ordered to hang a Christmas sign which weighed "the same as a small woman".

Mr Campbell suffered a severe ankle injury and has been unable to work more than four years after the accident.

Glasgow sheriff Kenneth Mitchell said the firm failed to give proper training at its Paisley Road West premises.

The 54-year-old maintenance man launched a legal fight against the company, which had denied any wrong-doing.
