Coal tip case clarifies nuisance liability principles

The High Court has recently held the Coal Authority liable in nuisance to local residents following a three-year fire at an old coal spoil tip near Swansea. The decision in Anthony and others v the Coal Authority (High Court 28 July 2005 [2005] EWHC 1654 (QB)) contains a valuable analysis of contemporary principles of nuisance, and will have relevance to anyone involved in restoring potentially hazardous sites.
