Road traffic - Drink-driving - Blood specimen - Defendant's part of specimen - Comments of custody sergeant discouraging defendant from analysing sample - Effect on conviction.
Where the custody sergeant made comments to the accused in relation to a blood sample that it would probably come back three times over the limit, that it would be expensive, and that no-one had ever sent a sample away before; although such comments were unwise, the district judge had not erred in concluding that they had not caused unfairness.
