Info Seeking

Asking this on my f-list before I venture into Little Details, as I don't particularly know how to Google for this.

Does anyone know if a person who has been convicted of a crime has any right to see the evidence used against him? As is, lab reports, autopsy results, etc. And if those are available to him, would the names of people composing them be redacted, or does he have a right to know them, as well?

It's not terribly important what the answer is, as I can have him acquire the information by illegal means, but I just want to know whether I have to state that the means were illegal, or if I can just write it out as something available to that person.

This is in the UK, if that makes a difference.
