[2001] EWCA Crim 906

A conviction was unsafe where a ruling that there was no case to answer for the co-accused because of the absence of evidence of joint enterprise had significantly altered the case that the appellant had to meet, and had deprived the jury from hearing information about the co-accused that could have been elicited from prosecution witnesses had the appellant faced trial alone from the outset.
