‘Super courtroom’ opens in Loughborough

According to the Ministry of Justice, £2.7m has been spent to revamp Loughborough Magistrates’ Court to create a space that is ‘much larger than a usual courtroom’, allowing up to an extra 250 cases a year to be heard across England and Wales.

A new ‘super courtroom’ has opened in Loughborough to allow victims, defendants and witnesses to receive “faster access” to justice, and for more gang trials to be heard in Loughborough, the Ministry of Justice announced.

The super courtroom within Loughborough Magistrates’ Court will act as an annex of Leicester Crown Court, and its cases will appear on the court list for the Leicester Crown Court.
