What was sufficiently serious depended on the circumstances of the case, and in particular the state of knowledge of the claimant under the cross-undertaking at the relevant time; but the claimant’s conduct had to be assessed having regard to the fact that the claim was for compensation under a cross-undertaking.”

However, in those circumstances the prisoners had suffered no loss or damage and were entitled to no more than nominal damages.”
