Defeat In rates row

RATEPAYERS with the highest bills in London yesterday lost their High Court fight to block a 62 percent rise imposed by Labour councillors.

Judges rejected the claim by an action group of Waltham Forest residents that the rise was unreasonable, and ordered them to pay the £100,000 legal costs.

The borough's average rates bill is £677.
