A 76-YEAR-OLD lady has been left looking for answers after she was injured when she slipped on a sausage roll in a shop.

Diane Davis frequently visits Yate Shopping Centre, however last month she was left injured on the floor of Poundland after slipping on the pastry.

The incident took place on Monday, October 28 around 10.30am and left Mrs Davis needing medical attention.

She was taken in a wheelchair to the West Gate Minor Injuries Unit with a broken arm and a damaged ligament in her foot.

“My son Derek and I walked in to the shop and I slipped over,” said Mrs Davis, from Yate.

“After it had happened it was obvious I had slipped on a sausage roll that somebody had left on the floor by the toiletries section.

“I was in a lot of pain and was helped by some people in the shop.

“The the security guard from the shopping centre came over and brought me a wheelchair to take me to the minor injuries unit.

“The security guard was really good with me so I am very grateful for his help.

“I waited for an X-ray and then I was told that I had cracked a bone in my arm and had other injuries.”

Mrs Davis then waited to be contacted by the store to discuss the fall, however she was forced to go back in after a lack of communication.

“I went in and spoke to the shop manager and I was told that I would be contacted again,” said Mr Davis.

“This went on and then when I called the head office they didn’t even know about the incident.

“I was told that an insurance company would be in contact with me but again I didn’t hear anything from them.”

Mrs Davis has been left unable to drive because of the incident, which makes caring for her husband Alan, who has dementia, even harder.

She has received correspondence from an insurance company which told her they are investigating.

“I just want answers and I don’t know why I am the one who that has been chasing them,” she said.

Poundland was contacted for comment but did not respond by the time the Gazette went to print.
