The appellants were arrested and jointly charged with the offence of wilfully obstructing free passage along a highway without lawful authority or excuse contrary to the Highways Act 1980, s 137(1). The Court found that the finding of fact in the previous decision did not lead to the conclusion that the appellants had laid down on a highway rather than a private road. The convictions were quashed.
Joanna Buckley was involved in this case.
