[2013] EWHC 982 (Admin)

The Home Secretary's refusal to revise Code C of the Code of Practice under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 so as to distinguish the procedures applicable to a 17-year-old detainee in police custody from those applicable to an adult was unlawful. Treating 17-year-olds in detention as adults was contrary to the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.8.
