EWCA Crim 2343
Whilst sentences of imprisonment of between four and eight years, imposed on six offenders for an offence of kidnapping that had involved careful planning, a large ransom, violence and threats of death, were lenient, they were not unduly so when set against the guidance in R. v Spence (Clinton Everton) (1983) 5 Cr. App. R. (S.) 413.
