Resource description

Comments on the Court of Appeal judgment in Valentine v Transport for London on whether to overturn the decision to strike out the claim that a highway authority had breached its duty under the Highways Act 1980 s.41 by not maintaining a highway and removing loose debris from the road, actions which were claimed to be the cause of the claimant's death after he drove over the debris and fell from his motorbike. Looks at the liability of the local authority, under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, for its failure to properly carry out a cleansing operation properly.
