Abstract

Each Concentrate revision guide is packed with essential information, key cases, revision tips, exam Q&As, and more. Concentrates show you what to expect in a law exam, what examiners are looking for, and how to achieve extra marks. This chapter considers the issue of nuisance, particularly the case of Rylands v Fletcher. In order to answer questions on this topic, students need to understand the following: private nuisance: who can sue in private nuisance? who can be sued? and categories of nuisance (ie noise, vibrations, smells, etc); public nuisance; the rule in Rylands v Fletcher (1866) LR1 Exch 265; specific defences to claims of nuisance; and remedies available in nuisance.
