Courting violence

Forget knives....sandwiches are apparently the new weapon of choice. Lawyers, reporters and visitors have reportedly been banned from taking their sarnies into a court building to prevent them being used as missiles and not in America, but in High Wycombe!

Bottles of water and crisps are also a no-no at High Wycombe Magistrates' Court because they pose a "health and safety hazard", reported The Telegraph. STW wonders just how much damage could be done with a crisp?

An official at the court was reported as saying: "The concern is that people will use their food as a missile and fling it down the stairs at people." What next? Banning food at football matches in case the ref gets a steak and ale pie in his face?!
