Mary and Sophie-Ann belong to a group of animal rights activists called Girlington Girlies. They are involved in a national campaign against Morrison's who own a chain of stores that sell products which have been developed by testing their possible side effects upon animals. One evening Mary and Sophie-Ann plant a bomb inside a carrier bag which they place inside the doorway of one of Morrison’s main shops. They telephone the police to warn them that the bomb has been timed to explode in two hours’ time. The area is quickly cleared of all members of the public and Snowhale, an army bomb disposal expert, is brought in to de-fuse the device. Unfortunately the bomb explodes as he is trying to move it and Snowhale is seriously injured. He is rushed to hospital where he refuses to undergo a blood transfusion as it is against his religious beliefs. Doctors are of the opinion that such a transfusion would almost certainly have saved his life. Mary and Sophie-Ann have now been charged with Snowhale’s murder. Discuss their possible liability.
