[2004] EWHC 2859 (Admin)

The defendant newspaper was guilty of contempt in circumstances where the publication of an article identifying two men as having answered bail in connection with gang rape allegations created a substantial risk at the time of publication that the course of justice would be seriously impeded or prejudiced, as the article would have been available to the complainant who would have been vulnerable in cross-examination on her identification evidence.
