Ottercroft Ltd v Scandia Care Ltd and another

Easement – Light. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the defendants' appeal against an order that they had interfered with the claimant's right to light. The judge had been entitled to take the defendants' conduct into account, including their breach of undertakings given to the claimant. There had been no error in holding the second defendant director of the first defendant company liable as a joint tortfeasor in circumstances where he had breached his own personal undertaking to the claimant.
