When Chesney Brown was caught shoplifting in The Kabin by Rita Sullivan in January 2004, she gave him a quick clip round the ear. He then tried to make a quick getaway and banged his head in the attempt. Rapacious mother Cilla Brown saw this as an opportunity to make some money from Rita by claiming compensation for the "injuries" her son had endured following this assault.
When the case came to trial the following month, Cilla had rehearsed Chesney well in what to say and when they arrived at Weatherfield Magistrates Court, the boy was delighted to be told by the Usher that he would be giving his evidence by video link, prompting his mother to comment that he would be just like a film star.
