Bernstein of Leigh (Baron) v Skyviews & General Limited (1978) QB 479
The defendant took an aerial photograph of the plaintiff's country estate.
Held: The plaintiff's rights had not been infringed. Griffiths J said "if the circumstances were such that a plaintiff was subjected to the harassment of constant surveillance of his house from the air, accompanied by the photographing of his every activity, I am far from saying that the court would not regard such a monstrous invasion of his privacy as an actionable nuisance for which they would give relief."
