Vehicle and Operator Services Agency v Jones (Nell): Admn 5 Oct 2005

The Agency appealed against dismissal of its allegation that the defendant had wrongfully withdrawn his tachograph record. He had lifted the top of the tachograph which had the effect if disengaging the marker without actually removing the record sheet.
Held: The appeal succeeded. The section was to be construed purposively. Any action which lifted the record sheet from the stylus could be construed as falling within the word ‘withdraw.’
