A judicial precedent which sticks in the mind of most law students is undoubtedly Donoghue v Stevenson  SC (HL) 31 (see Chapter 3 of Introductory Scots Law).
I couldn’t help but be reminded of Donoghue, when reading the following news story which appeared on the Sky News app today:
Human bone found in pair of socks in Essex Primark store
Would the unfortunate customer have a claim and, if so, against whom? Could there be a claim for psychiatric injuries?
What do you think?
The above matter also brought to mind a story which was reported by the BBC in 2015 where a decomposed frog was found in a meal provided by a well known restaurant chain.
