Taiwo v Homelets of Bath Ltd

Practice – Evidence. The appellant's appeal against judgment in favour of the respondent was dismissed. The Queens' Bench Division held that additional evidence could not be admitted by the appellant, as it was not substantial enough to have made a difference to the judge's original assessment of the respondent's claim. Further, the witness evidence of the respondent's relative, which was introduced during the hearing itself, was not inadmissible as the judge had carefully considered the criteria as set out in the case of Denton v TH White Ltd [2014] EWCA Civ 906, when allowing the evidence.
