[2001] EWCA Crim 2283 [2001] EWCA Crim 2283

In a successful appeal against conviction, the identification evidence of a police officer breached para.D:2.1 Code of Practice D.

Evidence of the name of an accused person’s companion was not identification evidence, but was in fact circumstantial evidence from which the jury was invited to infer that the attacker was, in truth, the accused.
