In late 2017 Miss B was charged with failure to provide samples of breath at the police station in Kent. She had been arrested at the roadside following a minor road accident. At the police station, she had a panic attack which rendered her incapable of fully understanding and processing the requirement made of her to provide breath samples. As a consequence, she was charged with failing to provide breath. At her trial in early 2018 compelling psychological evidence was introduced to support the effects of a severe panic attack. The court accepted both her evidence and that of the consultant psychologist and she was found not guilty.
