image for $1m compensation for disabled man who fell off public toilet after eight year legal wait
Biggest recorded legal weight in a pubic facility

Barking, Isle of Dogs - A local authority is to pay one million dollars compensation to a man who fell off the pot after eight years in a public toilet.

Barking Council agreed the seven figure payout as part of its compensation culture initiative in what's been described as a one-in-million case.

Unnamed disabled man Barry Dropmore, who is thought to weigh 39 stone (546 lbs), slipped and fell in Barking's municipal kazi as the toilet bowl beneath him broke.

Lawyers in the award loop say that substantial legal fees mean a whole shit pile of expenses will only add to Barking's bill 'landing on residents' doorsteps'.

Along with other settlement crap.

Dropmore had to be lifted by air ambulance earlier this year following the 2007 incident, described by Barking Council as a longdrop mess.

The wrecked public toilet will now be refurbished with taxpayer funding ahead of an official opening by Kate Middleton.

The price of using the new state-of-the-fart facility is likely to rocket to $1 a dump.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
