In re Times Newspapers Ltd and another [2008] EWCA Crim 2396; [2008] WLR (D) 331

For a court to order the anonymisation of defendants’ names in a case in which no applicable statute provided a power justifying such an order, careful regard would have to be had to the relevant tests identified at common law, viz whether, absent such an order, the administration of justice would be seriously affected or there was a real and immediate risk to the life of any of the defendants.”
