Mother, 46, who was left paralysed after being 'catapulted' from her bed during sex LOSES bid for £1million damages after judge rules 'tragic accident' was down to 'unusual positioning and movement'

A MUM left paralysed after being “catapulted” from her bed during sex has lost a High Court bid for £1m damages - after a judge said the accident was down to "unusual positioning".
Claire Busby suffered a serious spinal injury after she fell from the super king-size double divan whilst changing positions.

The 46-year-old's sex life played out in the public eye as she spent months chasing Berkshire Bed Company for £1m in damages.
As part of the hearing, Ms Busby even described how she was kneeling in the middle of the bed before the bed gave way and she fell off after moving positions.
Despite hearing the vivid descriptions, High Court judge Judge Cotter today dismissed the mum-of-four's claim against the company, saying it was a "tragic accident".
The judge found that two gliders, or feet, were missing from the bottom end of the bed, but concluded this was not the cause of Ms Busby's accident.
He said a "much more likely cause" for the fall was that she was in an "unusual position" towards the foot of the bed and kneeling back on her feet.
Judge Cotter said she had no means of support, other than placing her arm down on the bed, as she attempted to swing her legs around from underneath her in what was "not an easy manoeuvre".
It comes after Ms Busby gave evidence to support her claim, telling the court: "I felt like I was catapulted off the back of the bed.
"My head hit the floor, I fell to the side and then I heard like a spring in my body snap, it felt like."
The mum-of-four had claimed the bed was in a “defective state” and took legal action against the Berkshire Bed Company, trading as Beds Are Uzzz, which supplied it.
Berkshire Bed Company had denied any liability for Ms Busby's injuries and argued the bed was properly assembled.
A hearing into Ms Busby's claims heard from her married lover John Marshall, 55, who said he thought she was joking when she rolled backwards off the bed.
The construction boss said her feet went into the air in "slow motion".
He said: "I was expecting her to get up and, when she didn't, I laughed and said 'get up'. But she said that she had hurt herself.
"When I got up to look over the end of the bed, she was lying on her side with her arm underneath her.
"She said that she could not feel her arms and legs. I thought she was joking and laughed.
"She told me again that she had hurt herself and to call an ambulance."
Neil Bulmer, who was married to Ms Busby for three years, told The Sun Online the beautician "always had a high sex drive".
The bed was one of five that were delivered to Ms Busby's home in Maidenhead, Berks when she was renovating the property in August 2013, the court heard.
Richard Manders, director of Berkshire Bed Company, said: "We are delighted the court has ruled in our favour.
"We are sorry that Ms Busby was injured and we wish her and her family well for the future."
