Barclays Bank plc v Christie Owen & Davies Ltd (trading as Christie & Co)

Bank – Bank loan. The Chancery Division allowed the claimant bank's claim for repayment of a loan to purchase and improve entertainment properties in Great Yarmouth, where the borrower had been placed in administration, leaving the bank out of pocket. However, the court held that the bank had been contributorily negligent, so that it would only be entitled to 60% of the sum that it sought.
