Many witnesses experience stress and fear during the investigation of a crime and when attending court and giving evidence. Stress can affect the quantity and quality of communication with, and by, witnesses of all ages. Some witnesses may have particular difficulties attending court and giving evidence due to their age, personal circumstances, fear of intimidation or because of their particular needs. In such circumstances, where witnesses are considered to be vulnerable or intimidated, "special measures" can improve the quality of their experience by helping them to give their "best evidence". The Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act YJCEA introduced a range of measures that can be used to facilitate the gathering and giving of evidence by vulnerable and intimidated witnesses. The measures are collectively known as "special measures".

Section 41 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act is on one view a poorly drafted and clumsy piece of legislation. To complicate matters, it appears to have been incorrectly interpreted by the higher courts on numerous occasions. The reasons behind the legislation may have been legitimate and well-intended but its implementation demonstrates that a fair trial is often dependent on the whim of a trial judge and the attitude of a prosecutor. As practitioners we want certainty, fairness and clarity in the application of the law.
