Family of grandfather who died after drunkenly falling off stairs sue JD Wetherspoon for £150,000


The 74 year-old grandfather died on New Year’s Day 2018 after he fell eight feet from the stairs and landed on his head at Norwich’s Queen of Iceni pub in April 2016.

Brian McAlister, from Brandon in Suffolk, was walking to the toilet when he lost his balance, suffered ‘catastrophic’ injuries.

He was left confined to a wheelchair, and later died from the impact of paralysis.

His family, led by daughter Pamela Suttle, are now suing JD Wetherspoon Ltd for more than £150,000, blaming the ‘unusual design’ of the pub’s staircase for his death.

In a High Court action, Ms Suttle’s lawyers claim the ‘unsafe’ layout of the staircase made it more likely that someone who fell on the steps would fall over the bannister.
