This article is probably the worst one I have ever seen that relates to a living person. Many serious claims with no suitable citation. How should one ensure that it is improved quickly? PeterEastern (talk) 12:55, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Apologies for that. I failed to notice that a single edit had introduced the obvious problems which have now been fixed. I have removed the banners I added earlier today. PeterEastern (talk) 17:52, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Sourcing and notability[edit]

This living person's biography needs more reliable sources to base its content and indicate its subject is encyclopedically notable. Primary sources and self-publications by related parties alone are insufficient. Passing coverage in the role of a spokesperson is likewise not actually coverage of the subject. Here are some links that might lead to reliable sources giving substantial coverage:

Find sources: "Timothy Lawson-Cruttenden" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

FWIW, I've found the following that provide some information but that are not substantially about the subject (see WP:INHERIT). They all involve the subject as a spokesperson for litigants against certain protests, some of which may be noteworthy:

  1. Representing the BAA/Heathrow against Climate Camp protesters; the protesters won: Gillett, Robbie (2007-08-13). "The mother of all injunctions". The New Statesman online. Archived from the original on 2011-06-06. Retrieved 2013-01-06. ; and "Injunction will 'keep Heathrow secure'". Watford Observer online. 2007-08-06. Lawson-Cruttenden, representing BAA, alleged that "lives could be put at risk" if protesters blockaded roads leading to Heathrow, opening them up to terrorist attack. But Mrs Justice Swift rejected a host of applications from BAA, and dismissed entirely its argument that the groups intended to harass BAA and Heathrow airport. She granted an injunction that does little more than enforce the existing byelaws ; and "Climate Camp disbanded". UTV Live News. The Guardian online. 2011-03-02. Retrieved 2013-01-06. [In 2007] Climate Camp announced that it was going to target Heathrow airport. With the help of lawyer Timothy Lawson-Cruttenden, airport owners BAA announced they would be seeking an injunction against a huge number of potential protesters. The subsequent case drew enormous publicity and, as Murray puts it, "was an absolute PR gift to the camp." In the event only three people were subjected to the injunction, the camp went ahead, and dominated the news for nearly a fortnight 
  2. Representing Oxford against protesters opposed to a research lab: "Oxford wins extension to animal rights injunction". The Guardian online. 2004-11-10. Retrieved 2013-01-06.  and Pook, Sally (2004-09-15). "Oxford seeks animal rights ban". The Telegraph online. 
  3. Representing guinea pig farmers unsuccessfully opposed to protesters: "Activists 'no-go' zone rejected". BBC News online. 2005-03-13.  and Probert, Sarah (2005-03-18). "Villagers' no-go appeal fails". Birmingham Post online.
