Dobson v Thames Water Utilities Ltd [2009] EWCA Civ 28; [2009] WLR (D) 70

Where a court was considering an award of damages to an occupier of land for loss of amenity following transitory nuisance the actual impact on the occupier was relevant. An award would normally constitute just satisfaction to the occupier and no further compensation was due under s 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998.”
