‘Prosecutors will be on call 24 hours a day to assist, with courts sitting between 8am and 7.30pm, according to plans disclosed by The Times newspaper. The timescale for offences began on May 1 and will run to September 30.
Those alleged to have committed crimes will be assessed under a defined “Olympics offence”, dependent on whether it happened during the Games, at a venue or involved an athlete, spectator or official.
Offenders will also be “beamed” into virtual courts in Camberwell and Bromley using a live video link, to save the time and expense of transporting prisoners and minimise traffic disruption.’
