It had been unreasonable for a Chief Constable to have included information about a failed prosecution for sexual offences against a child on an enhanced criminal record certificate where the prosecution had failed due to the unreliability of the evidence. As the claimant, who had applied to volunteer as a church worker, obtained just satisfaction by the quashing of the decision to include the information, it was not appropriate to award damages and the fair thing to do was to reflect compensation in terms of costs.
