I'm back - but slightly incapacitated...

I am back from my holiday, but I've had a small accident.

I am back from my holiday, but I've had a small accident.
published on UK Free TV

The good news is that I am returned from my holiday.

The slightly less good news is that I managed to break my ankle and associated ligament. And not by any type of holiday sport or indeed drinking, but just in a hole in a unlit pavement.

Still, it has been great news for my mobile phone company, and Easyjet who insisted that my insurance company book another couple of seats I could not actually use.

So, it might be a few more days before I am able to catch up with the 1000+ messages posted whilst I was away.

Apparently the problem lies here:

Steve: It would appear so. And, of course, the brighter it is the easier it is to read the screen.

Graham . F . Lewendon: I expect, as it was Easyjet they were probably just looking to make an easy buck, as that is their business model.

And thanks.

woodface: Sadly, I had to use the Royal Sussex County Hospital. A place that two of my friends went in with minor traffic injuries and came out with MRSA. And the place that gave a wholly unacceptable (and wrong) cancer prognosis to another.

I don't think I can go wrong really, they have now fitted a "boot" which seems to be doing the job.

Andrew: They have told me that the boot is only required for six weeks, but I will bear in mind what you have said. Thanks.

Try reading book "Sour Grips by Simon Carr" ISBN 0-7499-5119-2
Its about accident claims paid out to persons in UK and US and the pay outs are in megga bucks. Remember the clause in the HSE regulations under heading of duty of care and also that it has to be demonstated that all reasionable care was taken to provent injury. Being able to later show in court the bill paid by passengers insurance company may be seen as such should a passenger later attempt claim under a clause within health & safety law(S)Maybe there is someone reading this who is qualified to clarify just what the air line was obliged to do to protec its passenger. Would the insurance company have paid up if airline action was inccorect?

philippa Carruth: Well trade predictor indications are that you should be receiving a good signal from either Blackhill or Darvel, although I would be inclined to take Darvel with the proverbial pinch of salt as it can be very variable in lower down areas of Glasgow, so to determine what station your aerial is pointing at go into your TV's tuning menu / signal test section whilst on BBC1 and note what the channel is shown as being, if its Blackhill it should be Ch46 with Darvel being on Ch22.

Of course in your situation there isn't really that much that can be done, that is except to carry out a test with the aerial pointing to the alternative transmitter.
