Judge asks why tragedy case ended up in court

Following Mr Lee’s acquittal after the four-day trial at Reading Crown Court last week, Judge Bruce McIntyre demanded to know why the “unusual and sad case” went ahead.

He said: “Some time ago the mother of Shane Benham wrote to the CPS asking them to drop the charges taking the view that, tragic though it was, the person who was responsible was Shane himself.

“I would like an explanation in writing as to why this case went ahead.”
