Concerns as Wakefield Court Earmarked for Closure

Only half of the people in Wakefield​ who've been summoned will be able to reach court in less than an hour using public transport.

That's according to new stats - despite the government's assurance that 95 percent of people using courts should be able to get there in that time. 

It's after we reported recently that Wakefield court will be shut as part of plans to close underused courtrooms and save 500 million pounds nationally.

People will now have to travel to Leeds.
