Asked about the comments made by Michael Pert QC at the Royal Courts of Justice in central London, Lord Judge said:
I take a very serious view about an offence of burglary.
Burglary of a home, whether it's a grand mansion or a very modest one up one down, is always an offence against property, but more importantly it is an offence against the person.
The householder is entitled to use reasonable force to get rid of the burglar.
