||Ian Little (instructed by Towns Needham & Co, Manchester) for the claimant.
||Ronald Walker QC and Catherine Foster (instructed by Berrymans Lace Mawer, Manchester) for the defendant.

Negligence - Causation - Breach of duty causing or materially contributing to damage - Claimant slipping on slippery surface at defendant's premises and suffering personal injury - Judge finding defendant liable for claimant's injury - Judge finding claimant not contributorily negligent - Whether judge in error.
In the instant case, a judge had been entitled to find that, stripped of detail, the claimant's account of how he had suffered personal injury had been clear and that the ingredients of the defendant's liability had therefore been established. There was no reason, therefore, to interfere with the judge's conclusion that the defendant had been liable for the claimant's personal injury.
