Negligence Duty to take care. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the judge had erred in dismissing the claimant's claim for damages for personal injuries, in circumstances where he had been injured following an attempt by the police to arrest him because of the way he had been driving his motor cycle. The court substituted a finding that the defendant was liable in negligence and that responsibility for the incident was 60 per cent on the claimant and 40 per cent on the defendant.
