Second justice centre to go-ahead
The UK's second criminal justice centre (CJC) has been given the go-ahead to be built in Warwickshire.

Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, probation officers and Victim Support will all work together at the centre in Newbold Terrace, Leamington.

The first CJC was opened last year in Nuneaton.

The plans have been criticised for being too large, but members of Warwick District Council's planning committee disagreed and approved them.

It means the existing magistrates' court will be demolished along with the office block called Jephson House.

The new CJC should be ready by the end of 2008.
