Historic court where Dickens sat reopens -- for a day





One of the oldest courts in Wales or England, where Charles Dickens is reputed to have sat at the press bench, is reopening - but only for a day.

At the request of Wales's senior judge, Mr Justice Roderick Evans, two appeals will be heard at Beaumaris court in Anglesey, which is now a museum.

Built in 1614, it reopens as a court occasionally to preserve its status.

"The court has played an important part in the history of Anglesey and Wales," Mr Justice Evans said.
