Nuisance Smell. The claimants had complained that the defendant company, Norton Aluminium Ltd, had caused nuisance by the emission of odour, noise, and particulate matter-dust from its foundry to which the claimants lived close by to as residential residents. The Queen's Bench Division held, inter alia, that the claimants had failed to establish a legal nuisance by way of dust and noise emanating from the foundry but had established an unreasonable interference with the use and enjoyment of their properties by reason of odour for a period beginning in mid 2003 and ending in mid 2010.
