R v Foster; R v Newman; R v Kempster; R v Birmingham  EWCA Crim 2869
“Where the defendant admitted a lesser or different crime from that charged in the indictment it did not necessarily follow that the trial judge was obliged to leave the alternative verdict for a jury’s consideration; sometimes it would be appropriate, but sometimes it would not.”
