And finally… heavy duty



A respected dance school is facing a lawsuit from a student who says she sustained injuries after being made to lift a “significantly” heavier partner.

Charlotte Vanweersch, 26, claims that the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds was negligent in pairing her up with the other woman.

She is seeking £500,000 because, she says, the lift damaged her spine and her left shoulder, affecting her ability to dance, The Times reports.

The dance school denies liability and says there is “always a risk of injury associated with physical activity”.
