[2007] EWCA Crim 2722

Where expert forensic evidence gave the impression that it was unlikely that the presence of a single particle of firearms discharge residue in the pocket of the accused resulted from innocent contamination, and where the judge summed up accordingly, the jury had been misled on the issue and, as fresh evidence indicated that the probative value of the evidence was neutral, the conviction was unsafe.
