Hargreaves and others v Brecknock and Radnorshire Magistrates Court and another

Warrant – Search warrant. The claimants sought judicial review of the issue and execution of two search warrants issued on the second defendant's application by the first defendant magistrates' court. The Divisional Court, in allowing the application, held that no warrants had been necessary, as neither premises were used exclusively as a dwelling and reg 21(1) of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, SI 2008/1277, sufficed. Everything had been done within scope and nothing had been seized to which the second defendant had not been entitled. Accordingly, the warrants would be quashed, but no orders made for other relief.
