Trespass in English law is an area of tort law broadly divided into three groups: trespass to the person, trespass to goods and trespass to land. Trespass to the person comes in three variants: assault, which is "to act in such a way that the claimant believes he is about to be attacked";  battery, "the intentional and direct application of force to another person";  and false imprisonment, "depriving the claimant of freedom of movement, without a lawful justification for doing so". Battery and assault require the claimant to establish that the defendant intended to act, while false imprisonment is a tort of strict liability. The guiding principle behind all three is based on the statement of Goff, LJ , who stated in Collins v Wilcock that "any person's body is inviolate",  excepting normal, day-to-day physical contact. Trespass to goods is defined as "wrongful physical interference with goods that are in the possession of another",  and is covered not only by the common law, but also by the Torts Interference with Goods Act The "trespass" can be as little as touching or moving the goods, given the right circumstances. It is unknown whether intention is required for a claim under trespass to goods, as the matter has never gone to court; the courts have confirmed that for damages to be awarded for harm suffered, the harm must have been reasonably foreseeable.
