Where defendants were sentenced for a number of offences and where part of those sentences were unlawful but to quash them would reduce the overall sentences to less than the offences merited, the Court of Appeal had the power under Criminal Appeals Act 1968 s.11(3) to change the sentences to ensure justice was met.
