Occupier's liability – Duty to invitee. The Queen's Bench Division, in an appeal by the defendant prison operator against a decision imposing liability under s 2(2) of the Occupiers Liability Act 1957, held that the trial judge had not erred be failing to consider whether as a matter of objective fact the premises in question, namely the prison, was reasonably safe. Nor had he erred in imposing an unduly high standard of care.
