Practice and Procedure

R. (on the application of ENVIRONMENT AGENCY) v JOHN CHRISTOPHER DRAKE (2009)

PUBLISHED May 6, 2009

[2009] EWHC 1344 (Admin)

The prosecution's late decision to not rely on scientific evidence did not prejudice the defendant as the case against him had never been put on that basis alone, and so he was actually facing a case on a reduced, rather than a different, basis.
