S11E06 - Between The Rock and a Hard Place

Listen to this week's show here.

On this week's show, John Cooper QC joins our roving reporter, Keith Jones in Gibraltar to talk about the law and the Bar in one of Britain's far-flung outposts.

A little closer to home, we look at what happens when you cough to something whilst in custody and when that sort of confession will not be allowed in to evidence.

We take a glance over fracking near Northpod Towers and celebs on trial near our local cobbles.

Also, a look at sentencing for assisting a suicide by buying the petrol used.  The rather grim case of R v Howe [2014] gets a once-over.

The links are below.  Enjoy UKCLB Podcast for the next six weeks and we'll see you on the other side of that.

You can listen to show by clicking right here but, of course, we'd prefer that you subscribed on iTunes or via Google Play Store or via any good podcatcher app on your phone/tablet.  Ben from Northpod Law particularly recommends this one for Android and iOS.You can also find us on Stitcher and soon on TuneIn.

S11E05 - Words, Words, Words

This week we carry on the tradition of the series in that we're a member of the usual team short. It's Ben on this occasion. He'll be back next week, I'm sure.  Listen Here  

Matters under consideration are – what knowingly means when it comes to the environment; when a crime under the Dangerous Dogs Act is not a crime at all (and it's not the same as the last one); when parking is not parking and when a solicitor can hang on to papers and when he has to pass them on. 

It's all very cutting edge as Jonathan gets excited about...
