Gp practice under threat of warrant in Bradford Crown Court murder case
10:00am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
A judge has threatened to issue a warrant if a GP practice fails to provide medical notes in the case of a man accused of murdering his grandmother. Nathaniel Flynn, 26, appeared at Bradford Crown Court yesterday via a video link from Wakefield Prison for a case management hearing.
He is also accused of the attempted murder of a nine-year-old boy, who cannot be identified, and two other charges of assault. No charges were put and no pleas taken at yesterday’s 20-minute hearing.
The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, was told by Flynn’s barrister, James Hill QC, that defence lawyers had had no success in getting their client’s medical records from his GP practice.
Mr Hill said: “The particular doctor and surgery may be labouring under the misapprehension of how serious this is.”
