Court open days

A TOTAL of 17 courts across Scotland are taking part in Doors Open Day this year.

Each court is planning its own event which will range from building tours letting visitors know about the history and workings of the courts, dramatised mock trials, glimpses into the custody cells and G4S secure transport vans, quizzes for children, charity tea bars and video presentations.

At Arbroath Sheriff Court tours of the court and cells will be offered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday (September 9).
