Kershaw and others v Connel Community Council and another

Local government – Community council – Personal injury action. Court of Session: In an action for damages for personal injury, brought by an individual who sustained a neck fracture after falling when descending a flight of steps and claimed a community council was jointly responsible for the poor condition of the steps, in which the issue was whether a community council could be sued for damages for personal injuries, the court held that community councils were hybrid bodies that could be sued in their own name.
