Judgement for the case Hussain v Lancaster City Council

P ran a shop on a council estate and sued the council, D, for failing to use its powers to stop certain residents from committing acts of criminal harassment against. CA struck out the claim as disclosing no cause of action. The actions complained of did not involve the tenants’ use of their land, and the council could not be liable unless it had authorised or undertaken the complained of acts itself.
