Expert witnesses testify in relation to matters within their knowledge and as a general rule evidence of opinion or belief is inadmissible. However exceptions have been made by statute and at common law in relation to expert evidence.

Expert evidence is admissible to furnish the court with information which is likely to be outside the experience and the knowledge of a judge or jury. An expert witness can provide the court with a statement of opinion on any admissible matter calling for expertise by the witness if they are qualified to give such an opinion. Expert opinion evidence is admissible at common law where it will be of assistance to the court and the expert has relevant expertise, is impartial and reliable. Section 30 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988 states that an expert's report is admissible as evidence of fact and opinion, whether or not the expert attends court to give oral evidence.
