Appeal against conviction for robbery successful because trial judge erred in his approach to s.76(2)(b) of PACE when he refused to exclude appellant's confession. Judge should have relied on the uncontradicted medical evidence and not his own assessment of the appellant's mental state.

CA (Crim Div) (Potter LJ, Rougier J, Judge Crane)
