A conviction for an offence of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, on the background of the case and in light of the expert evidence, could not be regarded as unsafe and the application for permission to appeal was refused. A 10-year sentence was however, somewhat excessive and was substituted with a sentence of eight years' imprisonment.

CA (Crim Div) (Potts J, Mance LJ, Judge Roderick Evans QC (Recorder of Cardiff))
