From aisles to trials for young magistrate Luke Penney

When he is not working on the supermarket checkout, 22-year-old Luke Penney can be found in a court room.

The young magistrate from Neath can go from helping shoppers pack their groceries to deliberating over criminal cases.

He applied for the role after a woman asked to put up a flyer in the store, recruiting magistrates.

One year into the job, he said he is a "completely different person" in court to when he is behind the tills.
