Whitesnake - Whitesnake Fan Sues Over Gig Sick Slip

A 39-year-old Whitesnake fan is suing council officials in Newport, Wales after missing out on the start of the band's December, 2011 gig in the town due to a filthy medical emergency.
Lindy Butcher claims she slipped in someone's vomit at Newport Leisure Centre and was seeking medical attention when David Coverdale and his bandmates took the stage.
She suffered bruising and soreness to her knees and muscle spasms between her ribs after the incident, which left her feeling humiliated.
Butcher claims Leisure Centre staff should have mopped up the vomit in a more timely fashion.
A letter from Newport council, obtained by local newspaper the Argus, reads: "It would appear the presence of vomit was reported to staff by a member of the public. One of the bar staff tried to call for a cleaner. However, it was extremely busy in the bar and cafe areas and in the absence of any detail concerning the actual whereabouts of the vomit and with so many people in the bars, it was difficult to pinpoint immediately where the vomit was located."
