Two aggrieved homeowners went to court last week to stop the developers of luxury beachfront apartments from blocking their panoramic sea views. The case was adjourned on Tuesday to allow the developers time to consider their position.

The developers claim that the obstruction of the view will be marginal, while the owners claim their views and privacy will be seriously affected.
