Invited by the Sheriff of the City of London Wendy Mead to attend lunch at the Old Bailey with her and Her Majesty’s Judges.
I was very honoured to be invited to arrive at the Lord Mayor’s entrance. I was given a warm welcome and I felt very privileged to be part of such a distinguished group of Judges.
We sat down promptly at 1.00pm with 22 to lunch and rose sharply at 2.00pm in order for the Court’s to continue.
I and the other two guests were invited to attend a Court afterwards We then witnessed the summing up and sentencing of a group of offenders who had committed an armed robbery - all of whom were sent to jail for a very long period.
