Leading acrobat injured in Dome plunge wins £510,000 compensation
By Robert Verkaik, Legal Affairs Correspondent of The Independent

A leading British acrobat, who suffered multiple injuries when she fell 20ft during a high-act display in the Millennium Dome, has won a record £510,000 in compensation.

Dozens of shocked visitors to the London attraction saw Suzy Barton fall on to the Dome's concrete floor, snapping her spine and breaking bones in her pelvis, feet and wrist.

The accident ended the career of one of Britain's highest-paid acrobatic performers as she was about to broaden her work to production and choreography. Soon after, she split up with her long-term boyfriend.

She now needs daily help to do ordinary household work and must live with the prognosis of osteoarthritis.

Dome performer gets record payout
by Ruth Gillespie for The Stage

Aerial performer Suzy Barton has received £510,000 compensation after falling 20ft on to concrete while entertaining at the Millennium Dome three years ago. Barton's injury award is the largest for a performer in the UK, although the biggest compensation payout remains the £650,000 given to the widow of actor Roy Kinnear in 1994.
