New Covent Garden row

The owners of London's New Covent Garden complex are heading for the High Court in a battle over possession of land at the site. Covent Garden Market Authority is suing supermarket chain Sainsbury's, claiming that it wrongfully entered into possession of the land and put equipment on it. It will argue when the case reaches court that a reasonable fee for the use and enjoyment of the site would be £20,000 a year.
