'The defendant, has, should we say, done a runner'
Plus: ‘If you're gonna have trouble at the airport security, you're on my show’: We meet the comedian behind a black comedy night at the Royal Court
Dear readers — today’s story is about eviction hearings, which represent a big chunk of lawyers’ casework at some of our local courts but go largely unreported in the media. Mollie attended two cases, one where a man lost his home in just five minutes and another where a young couple narrowly avoided a possessions order being granted on their home.
We also have a great interview with Che Burnley, whose comedy showcase at the Royal Court was a response to him not seeing many black people coming to comedy gigs.
