Regina v Evans (Gemma)

Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)

“For the purposes of gross negligence manslaughter, when a person had created or contributed to the creation of a state of affairs which he knew, or ought to have known had become life-threatening to another person, a consequent duty would normally arise on him to act by taking reasonable steps to save the other’s life.”
