[2009] EWHC 942 (Admin)

A warrant issued under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 s.8 to search the property of a discredited expert, suspected of having conspired to possess indecent images of children, was quashed where the police and magistrates knew that he had been an expert witness over many years and so they could not have been satisfied that there were reasonable grounds for believing that his computers would not contain material subject to legal privilege or special procedure material.

DC (Richards LJ, Owen J)
