Weymont and another v Place

Land – Acquisition of title by possession. The claimants sought damages for trespass and injunctive relief in respect of the use by the defendant of various parcels of land adjoining his property. The judge found in the claimants' favour and dismissed the defendant's counterclaim based on adverse possession. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the defendant's appeal and ordering the re-trial of the adverse possession issue, held, inter alia, that the judge had failed to produce a judgment which contained any adequate reasons for reaching the conclusion which he had.
