'Super courtroom’ opens at Manchester Crown Court

A “super courtroom” has opened at Manchester Crown Court, allowing gang-related trials of up to 12 defendants to be heard at once. The space is three times the size of a normal courtroom and will be used for cases such as county lines drug trafficking, murders and money laundering. The trials that require this level of space – known as multi-handers – have built up during the pandemic due to social distancing restrictions.
