Jones v Chief Constable of Bedfordshire Police




LTL 30/7/99 (unreported elsewhere) 1999-07-30

In a case where the evidence was not in dispute the question of whether, in making an arrest, a person was acting reasonably was one to be decided by the judge. Care should be exercised in finding that the lawyers must have been improper or unreasonable in a hopeless case as properly conducted and apparently reasonable cases can turn out to be hopeless cases. Leave to appeal to the House of Lords refused.
