[2001] EWCA Crim 559

A automatic life sentence for the commission of two serious offences was justified, and no exceptional circumstances existed, when the two qualifying offences were of the same kind and were committed within a year of each other and it had been found that the appellant posed a continuing risk and danger to the public.
