[2001] EWCA Crim 1364

The requirement for openness in communications between jury and judge was of such paramount importance that the substance of a jury note should almost always be disclosed, even where the precise terms of the note could not. The reliability of amended verdicts by a jury could be questioned when there had been no prompt correction of the verdicts and the time delay was sufficient to have provided the opportunity for further deliberation and the possibility of a change of mind.

CA (Crim Div) (Rose LJ, Hunt J, Mackay J)
