BARRISTERS, court officials and defendants alike were evacuated from Bolton Crown Court this morning after a fire alarm.

The alarm went off at about 9.30am after a heating panel in the building had overheated.

Dozens of people were forced to leave the building in Blackhorse Street while the situation was dealt with.

The court has now re-opened and people have been allowed to return.

About time someone cleaned those steps outside the 'Clown Court' which is possibly the ugliest building in town.
