There is no change to the 79 courts reported last week.  These 79 continue to be supported by five Nightingale Courts (Prospero House, Swansea Civic Centre, Knight’s Chamber at Peterborough Cathedral, The Lowry Theatre and Chester Town Hall) and four additional locations (Huntingdon Law Court, Brighton Magistrates’ Court, Bristol Magistrates’ Court and Swindon Magistrates’ Court).


As of 20 November there are 265 jury courtrooms available, supported by 10 jury courtrooms in Nightingale Courts.
