Convictions for manslaughter and affray were unsafe where the judge's summing up was flawed, particularly where there was no explanation as to how the prosecution put its case, there was no summary of the evidence on which the jury could properly rely in order to convict the accused, and the trial judge had failed to direct the jury that it had to be sure that witnesses who described the attack on the victim were credible.
