R v REDBRIDGE YOUTH COURT (Respondent) & CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (Interested Party), EX PARTE T (Applicant) (2002)

PUBLISHED February 12, 2002

[2002] EWHC 414 (Admin)

A youth court had been entitled to allow the 13-year-old victim of a mobile phone robbery to be cross-examined by video link, notwithstanding the absence of material relating to intimidation or traumatisation, as the extreme youth of the victim and the extreme severity of the attack made the case exceptional.
