The House of Lords is considering whether to allow the appeal of Justin Jolley against the London Borough of Sutton over an accident in which a boat fell on him. Jolley suffered severe spinal injuries while carrying out restoration on an abandoned boat owned by Sutton. He is now confined to a wheelchair.
