The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appeal in the first case and refused permission to appeal in the second. The claims had been time-barred and, in the case of the appeal, the relevant proceedings to which the time limit had applied had been the in personam action and not the earlier, within time, in rem action.
