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.
The first stage was to get Chesney to Weatherfield General's casualty department. While waiting there, Cilla told her son to say that he had been feeling dizzy and sick since he was hit and she would "tip him the wink" if anything else was asked. When they were in front of the Triage Nurse, Chesney played the part to perfection and Cilla assisted by saying that she had found him unconscious for a minute or so. The nurse asked if he felt faint and, after a surreptitious wink to his mother, he collapsed back in her arms. The nurse then decided that they'd better run some tests on the "sick child".
