More than a few claimants lack earnings records and tax returns .
In BROWNE V METROPOLITAN POLICE (2014 ) EWHC ( QB ) 3999 the Judge rejected a substantial claim from the claimant who worked randomly as a minder . The Judge decided that a lump sum of £25,000 was appropriate ( para. 62 ).
The Judge rejected the evidence of the 2 Police officers who had injured the claimant whilst arresting him . At the time Mr Browne was accompanying Noel Fielding who at 10.30 am was  still wearing his stage outfit consisting of dungarees, gold boots and a ladies' checked jacket. At that time his hair was dyed yellow blonde. A case for the fashion police ?
