A conviction for damaging property being reckless as to whether life was thereby endangered contrary to the Criminal Damage Act 1971 s.1(2) was unsafe where the act of breaking a window at a residential property with a brick, which was separate, distinct and unrelated to a subsequent act of throwing in a petrol canister with a lit piece of paper, could not be said to have endangered life.
