Crown Advocacy Clerking Manager, East Midlands – 2021: "As you’ll know, sorting the vast majority of clerking issues and specifically trials, it is very much a team effort. To that end can I please extend my personal thanks and those of the Police and wider CPS to yourself and your team for the work you did in offering Mr Hallissey for this case at such short notice but also for ensuring that he had the appropriate time and support he needed to get to grips with a case of such complexity.
Please pass on our thanks to all involved at 36 for a sterling job in very difficult circumstances."
