Hundreds of thousands of Polish families took out foreign-currency mortgages up until around 2010.

The removal of a fixed exchange rate against the euro by the Swiss central bank meant that monthly instalments for many Poles ballooned almost overnight, leaving them struggling to cope.

The EU court added that it was up to Polish courts to make decisions on such cases.
