R (El-Kurd) v. Sakavickas and another; R v. Rana Singh [2007] EWCA Crim 1888

“Where a judge had misdirected a jury owing to a defect in the indictment and the misdirection went to the heart of the issue between the defendant and the Crown, the conviction would be unsafe even if the indictment could have been amended so that the facts relied on would amount to the offence charged, and even where the case against the defendant was very strong.”
