*Barco de Vapor B.V. and others v Thanet District Council

Public authority – Operation of air and sea ports. The Chancery Division held that the authority had not had the authority to impose a ban which had prevented the claimants from using a port to export livestock on a vessel, the 'Joline'. The ban had been an unjustifiable breach of art 35 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the authority was liable to pay damages to the claimants.
