UK Sports Betting giant, Ladbrokes, has criticized a landmark decision by a country court ordering the group to pay a betting shop cashier traumatized by armed robbers during a robbery which took place at Ladbroke’s shop in Walsgrave Road, Coventry at 6.30 pm on 5th November, 2007.
Kerry Nicholls was working at the shop when it was raided by two masked men armed with a handgun. After pointing the weapon at her, Kerry was forced to allow the gunman to go behind the counter where he demanded money from the safe, leaving her hysterical and physically sick.
Kerry was awarded an amount of £9,000 by a Walsall County Court Judge last May after suing her employers, Ladbrokes Betting and Gaming Limited for compensation for her psychological injury.
However, Ladbrokes is challenging the ruling made by the County Court in May, 2012, and has lodged an appeal before Lords Justice Jackson, Tomlinson and Floyd in the Appeals Court. The appeal was lodged because the payout was awarded to Kerry on the basis that Ladbrokes had failed to provide the staff at the shop with a safe working environment and should have employed a magnetic locking system with external CCTV – controlled by staff – on the door of the shop after the hours of darkness.
Catherine Foster, on behalf of Ladbrokes, has attacked the judge’s approach to the evidence as “wrong” as the shop, although classified as a low risk shop, was fitted with more security than a low risk shop would be. Foster added that the manager undertook a shop specific risk assessment only one month before the robbery.
The three judges have reserved their decision on Ladbroke’s appeal.
One of the most prestigious events in the film industry’s calendar, the Cannes Film Festival, runs until Sunday, 26th May, 2013, when the winner of the Palme d’Or will be announced.
There has already been a high level of betting at UK bookmakers as punters speculate as to the winner.
Bookmakers such as Paddy Power, the Irish sports betting and online gambling giant, have given two films, the Japanese Like Father, Like Son / Soshite chichi ni naru (Hirokazu Koreeda) and the Iranian The Past / Le Passe (Asghar Farhadi), the lead.
Both films are on top of Paddy Power’s list of favorites to win the Palme D’Or at 5 / 2.
The Immigrant, which has a 1920’s New York storyline, follows close behind the first two films.
Despite the fact that Steven Spielberg has not had a movie at the Cannes Festival in decades, he will head the jury that will determine the outright winner. Nicole Kidman and Taiwanese contemporary filmmaker, Ang Lee, are also on the panel.
According to Robbie Collin, a film critic for the UK publication, The Telegraph, the makeup of the jury could possibly give punters a few hints regarding the types of films could win the Palme d’Or.
Collin added that it is very difficult to choose the best film so early on in the festival due to the fact that nobody has seen many of the films that are being screened, but by looking at the jury, one can draw some conclusions from the type of films you think they might enjoy.
