R v Brown [1985] Crim LR 212 Court of Appeal

The appellant appealed against his conviction for burglary. He or another with him had smashed the window of the Argos shop. He had leaned in and taken goods. The appellant argued that following Collins an entry into a building had to be substantial and effective and as his feet were still on the pavement outside the building there was no substantial entry.

Held:

His conviction was upheld. The entry need not be substantial provided it is effective.
