Criminal evidence and procedure - Trial - Summing up - Direction to jury - Putting the defence case - Judge giving adequate direction to jury - Safety of conviction.
Where a judge had highlighted all the points on which the defendant relied, making clear in that context that the jury should consider them carefully, the jury had been left neither in doubt as to the individual issues, nor as to the gaps in the evidence, nor that they had to take care in considering them before convicting the defendant. The conviction had not, therefore, been unsafe and would be upheld.
