  1. Gliding club abandons airspace plan challenge

    Gliding club in Lasham

    A gliding club has said it will not challenge a court ruling on airspace around Farnborough, despite its fears of future mid-air collisions.

    Earlier this month, the High Court upheld a plan to grant previously uncontrolled airspace to Farnborough Airport and define flight paths.

    Lasham Gliding Society said the scheme would divert planes into its area.

    In a statement, it said it would work to "minimise the impact" of the change, which is due to take effect in February 2020.

  3. Courtrooms sitting empty as cases are delayed

    Press Association

    Courtrooms are sitting empty while thousands of criminal cases are being delayed, lawyers have claimed.

    According to research carried out by barristers, 127 rooms out of 260 in 34 crown courts across the country were "sat idle" on Monday morning.

    Jonathan Dunne, a criminal barrister at the Nottingham and Leicester-based KCH Garden Square Chambers, compiled a list of rooms "doing absolutely nothing" with just two crown courts being "fully utilised" - Chester and Southampton.

    "There are thousands of cases backed up, relisted and delayed. Action has got to start matching the spin," he wrote on Twitter.

    Nottingham Crown Court

    Richard Atkins QC, chairman of the Bar Council, said: "This latest news will come as a devastating blow to those victims of crime who are waiting for their cases to come to court or who are waiting for justice to be done to those who have admitted committing crimes against them.

    "Justice delayed is justice denied, for all those involved in the criminal justice process. Courts should not be sitting idle but should be dispensing justice."

    A Courts and Tribunals spokeswoman said there was no shortage of judges in the courts and waiting times are reviewed throughout the year.

    She said, according to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), waiting times for cases are the shortest since 2014.
