[2004] EWCA Crim 3049

Where a lorry driver and his employer were tried together for causing death by dangerous driving and manslaughter respectively, and the length of the trial was over three times the original estimate, the delay in the trial was not of such a length as to require an explanation and even if it was the explanation for the delay justified that delay and no undue prejudice had been caused.
