R v MAY ARNAOT (2008)

PUBLISHED January 18, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 121

Where a defendant had not asserted that she drove dangerously out of fear of her personal safety and there was evidence to demonstrate reasonable alternative ways to respond to a situation, no defence of necessity arose and all parties in the case ought to have realised the fact during case management proceedings.
