Khan v Armaguard Ltd: CA 23 Feb 1994

The plaintiff had been injured when, as a passenger in his employer’s security van, it turned over as it left the motorway.

The defendants now now appealed against an order for the disclosure of the film.
Held: The appeal failed: ‘The ‘cards on the table’ approach which now operates in my view requires that it should be very rare indeed in a personal injury case for an order for non-disclosure of a video film to be made. ‘
