Cases due to be heard at Gloucester Crown Court today had to be transferred to Bristol because a ceiling collapsed in the custody cells.

The court was closed for 'health and safety' reasons because it was unsafe to detain defendants in the cells below the courtrooms until the damage had been inspected and the ceiling made safe.

It is not yet known whether hearings will be able to resume at the 200-year-old Gloucester court building tomorrow or if they will also have to be dealt with in Bristol.
