Chelmsford is a large town in Essex, called Celmeresfort in the Domesday Book which was compiled in 1086. However, it had changed its name to the modern spelling by 1189. A royal charter was granted in 1199 for the town to hold a regular market, and even today there is an indoor market operating in Chelmsford from Tuesdays to Saturdays. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company was established by Guglielmo Marconi in Hall Street, Chelmsford in 1899, and for this reason, the town became known as the ‘birthplace of radio.’ In May 2014, a survey conducted by the ice-cream manufacturer, Walls, found that Chelmsford was the third ‘most serious city’ in the UK, with residents claiming to be worried about their finances and spending time commuting to work. The two most serious cities, according to this survey, were Portsmouth and Wrexham.

Accidents in Chelmsford?
The survey which showed that Chelmsford’s residents are serious could not have taken into consideration the nightlife and the events which are held in Chelmsford. Certainly the people of Chelmsford are not always serious as the V Festival alone, can prove. This music festival is held annually in August, at Weston and Hylands Parks and is a time for everyone, residents and visitors alike, to let their hair down.
However, care should be taken when attending festivals this summer in the UK as all kinds of accidents can happen, some of which can be avoided. Health and Safety regulations stipulate that measures should be taken by organisers to ensure public safety. So if you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if the organisers had been negligent in their duty.
