An Enfield woman has claimed thousands after slipping in a pool of fabric softener in Morrisons

A pensioner who slipped in a pool of spilt fabric softener in an Enfield supermarket has won a four-figure settlement.

Betty Simpson tore muscles in her shoulder and hip when she fell because of the washing product in Morrison’s in Southbury Road, Enfield.

The 76-year-old’s settlement is undisclosed and the national supermarket chain admitted liability for the incident.

The Waltham Cross woman said: “Something as simple as slipping on some spilt liquid in the supermarket caused me a great deal of pain and inconvenience and I feel annoyed that the accident could have been prevented if a member of staff had just cleaned the mess up. Shops should make sure they keep an eye out for spillages so they can sort them quicker.

“The fabric conditioner must have leaked from someone’s shopping basket as I couldn’t see any bottles on the floor near where I fell. My injuries from the accident left me in pain for many months and I struggled to go about my day-to-day activities such as walking to the shops or spending time with my grandchildren.”
