[2011] EWCA Crim 916

In a retrial of several charges, evidence of an acquittal on one or more of the charges at the first trial should not be put before the second jury unless there was a clear inference that the first jury had rejected the testimony of a witness because it did not believe him, as opposed to thinking he might have been mistaken, and his credibility was directly in issue in the retrial.
