*Chief Constable of Greater Manchester v Clader

Statute – Construction. In a case where a without notice injunction was granted in respect of a respondent who was suspected of being a gang member under the Policing and Crime Act 2009, the Queen's Bench Division refused an appeal against a decision of a judge not to continue that injunction on the basis that it was not sufficient for the police to contend that they had identified links if those links had not amounted to a signifier or characteristic of gang membership that had resulted in others responding to the street identity. Accordingly, the judge had been right to conclude, as he had done.
