Therapists win injury payout

Two former beauty therapists who developed repetitive strain injuries through giving massages to air travellers have won a total of £300,430 damages from Virgin Atlantic in the High Court.

Jayne Evans and Michelle Hindmarch worked in the Clubhouse Lounge at Heathrow, giving frequent prolonged treatments, until they developed pain in the wrists, shoulders and back, forcing an end to their careers.

Virgin Atlantic accepted liability but disputed the amount of compensation due.
