[2008] EWCA Crim 3129

Refusing to list or adjourn a trial to suit the availability of an expert witness for the defence, with the effect that that witness had to be called first or not at all and had accordingly been forced to explain to the jury what the defendant had said to him about various matters which had enabled him to reach his conclusions, deprived the defendant of a fair trial.
