Council chases bus profits

Hertfordshire County Council is taking London Regional Transport (LRT) to the High Court in a dispute over buses. The council claims that LRT agreed to pay profits and surpluses generated by cross-boundary bus services between Hertfordshire and Greater London. Now the council is seeking High Court declarations that LRT is bound to account for and pay profits from the bus services to the council, and is seeking an order to make it do so. The council accuses LRT of breach of contract.
