The Court of Appeal may interfere with a sentence1 where (inter alia):
(1) the sentence is defective in law2;
(2) the sentence improperly took material into account3;
(3) the sentence was passed on an incorrect factual basis4; and
(4) where the public interest would normally require a substantial penalty5.
It is not enough that the sentence is more severe than the Court of Appeal would have imposed; it must be much too severe or the wrong form of sentence
