[Report of the Medical Officer of Health for St. Pancras, London, Borough of]
Held, that the connection did not make the pipe under house A a sewer
within the meaning of ss. 101 and 250 of the Metropolis Management Act, 1855.
Held, further, that, even if the connection had been made without authority
the present plaintiffs, not being purchasers for value, could get no higher
rights than the original owner had as against the public; and the pipe would
still remain a drain.
A notice under ss. 83 of the Metropolis Management Act, 1855, had been
served upon the plaintiffs by the defendants.
Held, that it had been wrongly served (assuming that the connection had
been wrongfully made), because the plaintiffs were not the persons who had
made the connection originally.
