[2009] EWCA Crim 819

It had been open to a judge to exercise his discretion to give a Watson direction where the jury had sent him several notes, the final of which had triggered the direction. The jury had been retired for a considerable period of time before the direction, and had further deliberated the point after the direction, therefore the verdict was not unsafe.

CA (Crim Div) (Scott Baker LJ, Rafferty J DBE, Griffith Williams J)
