M/S Aswan Engineering v Lupdine Limited [1987]

Considered question of liability for defects in
packaging.
Plaintiffs lost quantity of waterproofing
agent because containers collapsed in high temp in Kuwait.
Action against manufacturer of containers
failed – damage not reasonably foreseeable.
Lloyds LJ – Had that not been case, loss would have
been damage for which manufacturers were liable.
Nicholls LJ – Disagreed – manufacturer would not be
liable as would be unreasonable.
