Westminster Magistrates Court has become a theatre for the day. So far the leading man (Janner) has failed to appear on stage – and his supporting cast have enacted a set piece tragic scene whilst stage hands gear up for a possible change of venue.

As the play draws to a close, a messenger arrives with news of J’s capture – but B proposes to postpone his punishment to another day
The curtain rises again at 1400 hrs.
