Pop record producer Michael Stock - of Stock Aitken and Waterman - has launched a massive damages claim over his recording studio in London SE1. Stock claims he has been unable to use the studio since November 1996 because it is too noisy. He is taking Andrew Munro, trading as Munro Associates, of London SE1, to court seeking damages for alleged negligence and breach of contract. Stock claims he spent substantial sums on the original refurbishment and the fitting out of the property and the studio but that he has effectively wasted in the region of £1,154,606. He claims that repair work to install sound insulation is impractical.
