Spicer v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis

Libel and slander – Defamatory words. The article complained of in a libel action did not mean that the claimant was one of two people found 'guilty of killing a woman while racing their cars'. No reader of the whole article could reasonably draw that conclusion. The Queen's Bench Division so held and, further, ruled on the meaning of the article complained of in respect of the claimant's behaviour in relation to an incident which had occurred in 2015.
