Council and organiser liable for inflatable artwork deaths

A High Court judge has ruled an event organiser and a council were to blame for the deaths of two women when an inflatable artwork, called Dreamspace, blew off the ground.

The tragedy happened almost five years ago at Chester-le-Street in County Durham.

Most of the compensation claims have been settled, but who was liable for the payments was never agreed.

Gerry Jackson reports.
