Moberly v Alsop (1991) The Times 13 December

The defendant travelled on the underground without purchasing a ticket. He was caught and escaped through the exit barrier without paying. He argued that the payment was not due on the exit barrier so had not made off from the spot where payment was due.

Held:

His conviction was upheld. The spot where payment was due was not limited to where the defendant should have paid, but also to where he should have made good his default. There can be more than one spot where payment is due.
