Applications for leave to appeal against convictions for murder, based on fresh evidence and a complaint that the legal advisers had failed to conduct the defence properly by not advancing the defence of diminished responsibility, were refused, as the fresh evidence did not undermine the Crown's case and it was not appropriate, in the circumstances, to allow the issue of diminished responsibility to be argued on appeal.

[2005] EWCA Crim 2514
