Bhamra v Dubb [2010] EWCA Civ 13; [2010] WLR (D) 10

“A caterer, who had supplied a dish for guests at a Sikh wedding knowing that the recipe could sometimes contain egg, a food prohibited by the Sikh religion, owed a duty of care to a guest who was allergic to eggs and subsequently died after eating the dish served. Such a conclusion was justified on the basis of well established principles of proximity, and after invoking CPR r 52.11(4) to enable the Court of Appeal to draw such inferences as were justified on the evidence where the judge below had not made a critical finding of fact.”
