SIR - What has happened to the In The Dock section of the newspaper, which has not appeared now for several months?
You ran a short article several weeks ago stating that there was a computer problem at the Central Herts Court, but surely this has been resolved by now?
Or has our campaigning local newspaper been 'got at' by the politically-correct brigade, shedding crocodile tears for law-breakers whose human rights might be infringed by being named and shamed in public?

I heard her give her name, so I was hoping to see whether her abusive manner ended in a court appearance, and what fine she incurred, by reading the long-missing regular In The Dock section.
Presumably, this stroppy young woman thinks she could get away with eating in a restaurant for free, just because she left the house with no money?
