Sellu v The Crown [2016] EWCA Crim 1716 (15 November 2016)

Manslaughter by gross negligence: appeal

David Sellu, a consultant specialising in colorectal surgery, was convicted by a majority verdict of the manslaughter by gross negligence… (paragraph 1)

…we have come to the clear conclusion that the way in which the issue of gross negligence manslaughter was approached (and, in particular, the consequential direction to the jury) was inadequate. As a result, the conviction is unsafe and is quashed. (paragraph 156)
