: It's actually 30,000 to each plaintiff and therefore
: about 30,000 pounds each from Helen and Dave (ignoring the strange ratios of resposibilty ruled by Justice Bell - see summary)

McDonalds say they aren't bothered about picking it up anyway. What's
60,000 when they have a 10,000,000 bill for costs? And compared to their annual turnover that's nothing. *sigh*

They'll probably claim the money anyway and give it to some wonderful children's charity, the saints...
