Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of ERNEST BENNETT) (Claimant) v HM CORONER FOR INNER SOUTH LONDON (Defendant) & (1) OFFICERS A (2) OFFICERS B (3) COMMISSIONER OF POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS (Interested Parties) (2006)

PUBLISHED February 6, 2006

A coroner's direction to a jury requiring it to decide whether a police officer's use of lethal force was reasonably necessary in all the circumstances was correct in law. There was no real difference between the common law reasonableness test and the test under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.2.
