Where the jury had seen the complainant giving evidence via video-link at trial and also in a previous video with a police officer, it had been incumbent on the trial judge to give an appropriate direction to the effect that previous statements did not constitute evidence that a jury could rely on save to the extent that the complainant accepted it in preference to the evidence she had given in court.
