DETERMINATION AND REASONS
'I intend only to emphasise that an Article 3 case of this kind must be based on facts, which are not only exceptional, but extreme: extreme, that is, judged in the context of cases all or many of which (like this one) demands one's sympathy on pressing grounds' (emphasis added).
Thus the facts of N also furnish a benchmark as to what is necessary to cross the Article 3 threshold.
