Mud on the road [Liability]
The claimant was riding his motorcycle on the A509. As he proceeded over a roundabout, his bike skidded and slipped on mud that had accumulated on the road. The claimant alleged that the mud had been caused to accumulate on the road as a result of the negligence of the defendant, who had been a contractor working on a nearby site. Under the terms of their agreement, the defendants had to ensure the cleanliness of their vehicles before leaving the site so as to prevent pollution of the highway.
