In order for there to be imprisonment it is necessary to show that the claimant's liberty has been restricted in all directions and that they are being confined or constrained within limits imposed by another. It is not sufficient for the claimant to show that they have been inconvenienced or restricted in one direction only. In Bird v Jones  7 QB 742 the claimant was prevented from walking on part of a bridge. He was not falsely imprisoned as he was free to take an alternative route. If the claimant is being confined then they will be imprisoned unless there is a reasonable means by which they can exit or gain their freedom. They are not expected to take dangerous or unusual methods of exit, e.g. jumping from a fifth storey window.
