Cooke v Midland Great Western Railway of Ireland 
- A child was playing on a turntable owed by the defendants, a common occurrence
- The child’s leg was crushed when the turntable moved
- Could the defendant be held liable to the child?
- Implied consent was found for the child to be on the premises, as steps were not taken to prevent children playing
- Implied licences were easier to find prior to the 1984 Act, as otherwise (almost) no duty could be owed
