The Farm did seek a contribution from the HPA and Tandridge District Council to these claims but Mr Justice Turner ruled in the High Court last week that as a pure matter of law, no duty of care was owed by those public authorities to members of the public in these circumstances.The Griffin Inquiry reported in June 2010 on the outbreak and the Farm cooperated fully with the authorities into that investigation.
