Solicitors 'appalled' by safety arrangements in police Covid-19 custody suite in Belfast

A leading solicitor has said lawyers are “appalled” by safety arrangements in the PSNI’s specialist Covid-19 custody suite.

It was reported this week that 53 alleged offenders with coronavirus have been detained at the 10-cell block at Musgrave police station in Belfast over the last two months.

Part of the arrangements include a perspex screen dividing detectives and suspects in interview rooms.
