[2011] UKPC 15

It was possible for a defendant facing murder charges to establish that he had been provoked into losing his self-control even though some of the hallmarks of a frenzied attack were missing and he had not expressly described himself as losing his self-control. It was often unhelpful to try to separate out the evidence of provocation from that of loss of self-control, because, realistically, they were two closely connected aspects of the same first limb of the provocation defence.
