The second hearing into the Buncefield Oil Depot dispute will take place on 30 October, the judge presiding over the case announced this week.

The announcement coincides with a decision by the law firm representing the residents affected by the blast to relaunch their previously postponed group litigation order.

Des Collins, senior partner at Collins solicitors, explained: "We have a different agenda from the law firms representing the insurance industry and its commercial policyholders."

Senior Master Turner is set to issue his summary report to Hertfordshire Oil Storage's law firm, Davies Arnold Cooper, which will then distribute it to the claimant solicitors - at which point it will become public.
