Judgement for the case R v Tosti

 Ds went to a barn to try an break in and in examining the padlock so as to see how to get in they were disturbed and fled. In the appeal against conviction, CA said that there were cases when acts could be seen as both preparatory AND part of the commission of the crime itself. This was such a case and therefore there was enough evidence for the charge to be left to he jury. CA dismissed appeal.
