Self Defence: Legal Guidance: The Crown Prosecution Service

Government webpage explaining English self-defence law. Good for “myth-busting” and explaining what the law is re: reasonable force, pre-emptive striking, the honestly held beliefs of the person being attacked.

Unfortunately in Scotland we don’t have such explicit guidelines from our equivalent government body, the Procurator Fiscal, however this gives an indication of what is acceptable.
