Criminal evidence - Video recording - Witness recognising defendant on video recording and identifying him as suspect - Video recording available to jury - Whether evidence of witness of identification by way of recognition admissible in circumstances.
When a suspect was filmed committing an offence, the evidence of identification by way of recognition from a witness, not present at the scene, but who knew the defendant and who, having seen the film, identified the suspect as being the defendant, was not inadmissible because the film could be played to the jury without calling the witness.
