A holidaymaker has sued TUI for £112,620 after she slipped in a puddle at the juice bar at a four-star Spanish hotel resort and shattered her ankle.

Mrs Carey is now suing holiday giants TUI Ltd for £112,620 over the January 2016 accident, which her lawyers have blamed on a puddle of juice or water from a cava cooler bucket which cleaners failed to mop up.
