Chief Constable of Sussex Police v Secretary of State for Transport and another

Police – Powers. The Divisional Court allowed, in part, the claimant chief constable's application for disclosure of material in the possession of the Air Accidents Investigation Branch of the Department for Transport. The benefits of disclosure of contemporaneous film footage recorded within the cockpit of an aircraft at the time of its crash outweighed the adverse domestic and international impact that such disclosure might have on that or any future safety investigation.
