Bridge UK.Com Ltd (t/a Bridge Communications) v Abbey Pynford PLC - QBD 4.4.07

Bridge UK is a commercial printing and mailing business. They bought a 2nd hand Press which weighed some 62 tonnes and needed a strong foundation. Abbey Pynford won the contract for installation of a piled foundation for the Press. However things went wrong.
