Sofa blamed for heart failure

21st October 2008

A man living in Plymouth has said he will take a sofa manufacturer to court because he alleges that chemicals used to make the sofa caused him to suffer heart failure.

Barry Green suffered pneumonia and heart failure after buying the sofa. He believes his illnesses were caused by chemicals in anti-mould fungicide placed under the sofa. A spokesman for Land of Leather said: "As the subject matter of the report is part of on-going High Court proceedings, the matter is sub judice and as a result we are advised by leading counsel that it is improper for us to comment."
