Robinson and Another v Northumbria Police Authority and Another: CA 12 Oct 2001

Two police officers sought damages after their patrol car was trapped and attacked by youths. Senior officers were aware of such attacks, and considered arrangements for different windscreens.
Held: The risk was forseeable, and given the additional known risks faced by police officers, it was reasonable for the authority to have acted.
