The term 'nuisance' as used in law is not capable of exact definition1. Although most nuisances arise from a long continuing condition, a single isolated happening is sufficient if it arises from a continuing condition on land in the control of the defendant2.
Nuisances may be broadly divided into:
(1) acts not warranted by law or omissions to discharge a legal duty, which obstruct or cause inconvenience or damage to the public in the exercise of rights common to all the Queen's subjects
