A CASE at Croydon Crown Court was held up this morning - because a barrister injured himself by walking into a lamppost.

The solicitor was left red-faced and bloody-nosed in equal measure, after the incident this morning - as explained by our chief reporter Gareth Davies on Twitter.

The barrister, Giles Newell, pointed to a bruise on his head, as he tried to explain his late arrival to the Recorder Judge Kenneth Hamer. 

He said: "Embarrassingly - and you can see on my head - I walked into a lamppost while waving to one of my neighbours this morning. After it happened I had to have a sit down for half an hour."

Fortunately for Mr Newell the judge made light of the incident, even though it delayed his summing up of the trial of two teenage brothers, accused of stabbing two other teenagers at the Whitgift Centre in January.
