R (McClure & Moos) v The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis [2012] EWCA Civ 12

Reasonableness – correct approach – demonstrations – crowd control – proportionality

In assessing the reasonableness of a decision to contain a protest, the High Court had erred by coming to its own view rather than reviewing the reasonableness of the Chief Superintendent. Applying the correct approach, his apprehension on an imminent breach of the decision was not unreasonable.
