Carter-Brown and others v Crown Prosecution Service

Highway – Obstruction. The judge had not been entitled to conclude that the part of a road upon which the appellants had laid down had been a highway, such that their appeals against convictions for wilfully obstructing free passage along a highway without lawful authority or excuse were allowed. The Divisional Court held that the judge's finding that there was a possibility that a line marking the highway had been in the wrong place could not be reconciled with a finding that he had been sure that the appellants had laid down upon the highway.
