RNLI warning to Respect the Water during ‘deadliest’ month at the south west coast
North Devon Court Closure Threat
There are fears that criminal cases will no longer be heard at Barnstaple magistrates court.
Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service has announced plans to cut the number of criminal cases heard at Barnstaple Magistrates.
But the plan has infuriated North Devon District Council and solicitor groups because the consultation period ended before they had time to voice their full objections.
They fear justice won't be done if defendants, witnesses and solicitors have to travel over a hundred miles round-trip to Exeter Magistrates.
And they are worried that minds may already have been made up - because a notice has gone up on the court door saying that there will be no more 'listings' of cases from October.
