A theatre has been paid a six-figure out-of-court settlement after an accident with a beanstalk left one of The Krankies with a fractured skull.
Janette Tough fell from the Beanstalk in December 2004
Steeldeck Ltd, who supplied the Ribbonlift beanstalk, settled with the Pavilion Theatre, where Janette Tough was injured during a 2004 pantomime.
Mrs Tough fell 10ft during a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk.
Steeldeck made the one-off payment without admission of liability. The Krankies are pursuing a separate claim.
Pavilion manager Iain Gordon said: "The fact that they have settled with this substantial sum so quickly speaks volumes.
"It was a difficult period for all concerned and we have now taken a significant step forward to putting it all behind us."
Mrs Tough plays Wee Jimmy Krankie as one half of a duo with her husband Ian.
