[2001] EWCA Crim 1606

There was not automatically an abuse of process where the police had failed to obtain and retain relevant closed-circuit television footage when serious prejudice against a defendant could not be shown, there was no bad faith on the part of the police and a fair trial had been possible. The adequacy of the evidence necessary before charging a suspect was essentially a matter for the judgment of the police.

CA (Crim Div) (Potter LJ, Tomlinson J, McCombe J)
