Recent Cases

Nathan Taylor-Allkins successfully assisted a client accused of drink driving by dissuading the Police from taking any further action in respect of the allegations. The client openly admitted that he had consumed a small, legal amount of alcohol before driving but had consumed more alcohol when he got home, before the police attended on allegations that he was intoxicated. The police requested that a specimen of breath be provided and this gave a positive result. The client was arrested on suspicion of driving with excess alcohol, was taken to the police station and further evidential tests were undertaken.

Once released pending further investigation, the client instructed Nathan to assist and advise and this led to the instruction of a forensic expert to provide a “back-calculation” report, together with witness statements being obtained to confirm the amount of alcohol consumed pre-driving. Nathan then prepared detailed representations to the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service evidencing the client’s innocence and identifying the corroborative evidence which confirmed that at the time of driving, the level of alcohol in the client’s system was below the legal limit. Following a lengthy review of the evidence, the police notified the client that he would not be subject to any further investigation or proceedings for this incident.
