R (on the application of CL) v Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police

Police – Disclosure of information. The regime for the collection and retention of data concerning reports of matters which might amount to the commission of a crime by a minor did not breach art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights on the basis that it was not in accordance with the law. The Divisional Court, in dismissing the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant Chief Constable's refusal to delete crime records as a result of the claimant's alleged involvement in three sexting incidents when he was 14 or 15, further dismissed the submission that the recording and maintenance of the two crime reports had been disproportionate.
