News of King Lane’s unwanted title emerged as a separate YEP investigation revealed that council bosses in Leeds have forked out more than £500,000 in compensation to people injured because of poorly-maintained pavements.
A total of £526,449 was paid to the personal injury claimants by cash-strapped Leeds City Council over the course of the last four financial years.
The council received 1,167 claims for compensation for injuries related to uneven or neglected pavements during the same period, although it is not clear how many of those were successful.
