Beautiful Weddings Ltd agreeing that the latter will organise the wedding in a
field, taking care of the decoration of the field, as well as of catering and
entertainment for the guests. Helen has paid £10,000 in advance in order to
cover the cost of the organisation of the wedding by Beautiful Weddings Ltd.
However, two weeks before the wedding the local council cancelled the licence
of the field owner to organise events in the field.
Helen has also paid Peter £400 to use his horse driven carriage for her arrival

advertisement George comes to see the café and during the negotiations for
the sale John tells him that there are plans to increase the number of
platforms at Malford railway station, which will significantly increase passing
trade and therefore will lead to an increase of the profits of the café of 10,000
per year. These statements were true when John made them, but they were
not included in the subsequent written contract.

Railways Board announced that it would no longer be increasing the number
of platforms at Malford station. However John did not inform George of this.

and what possible remedies might be available for George.
