In Weller & Co v Foot & Mouth Disease Research Institute [1965] 3 All ER 560 the plaintiff was an agricultural auction house that brought a claim for loss of profits against the defendant Institute. The defendants had negligently released the foot and mouth virus and infected local cattle, resulting in a cattle movement ban and the cancellation of local auctions. The claim was unsuccessful as it was for pure economic loss. The plaintiff had suffered no damage to their own property. Their losses flowed from damage to cattle owned by the local farmers.
