Holiday park owner Bourne Leisure has won the first round of its £15m court battle with Great Yarmouth Port Authority for compensation following extensive coastal damage at Hopton Holiday Village at Hopton-on-Sea.

The judge ruled in favour of Bourne Leisure on all five of the preliminary issues, rejecting the Port Authority's argument that the owners of the holiday village should not be allowed to proceed with their claim. It's now expected that the trial of the claim will take place next year.
