R v Greene

“Where a judge ruled that a witness could be treated as a hostile in examination at trial within the meaning of s 3 of the Criminal Procedure Act 1865 by the party calling him, but that witness did not in the event prove to be hostile, the judge was still obliged to warn the jury to approach that witness’s evidence with some caution, and the nature of that direction depended on the particular circumstances of the case.”
