Tort – Wrongful interference with goods.

The Queen's Bench Division held that the conspiracy claim had not been established, but that the first defendant had converted the containers it held as bailee. The fourth defendant was also liable for conversion for taking possession, through the third defendant, of the containers and disposing of them. Damages would be limited to the sale price achieved of £7,500.
