No Magistrates court for RCT

Pontypridd Magistrates’ Court will become the latest court in Wales to close.

It’s all part of UK justice reforms.

The Ministry of Justice announced back in February that 10 law centres in Wales would shut – including the one in Pontypridd.

The court’s final day is today, with new cases transferred to Merthyr Tydfil from next week.

It leaves Rhondda Cynon Taff without a magistrates’ court, after Llwynypia and Aberdare courts shut in 2010.

The Ministry of Justice said the decision to close a court was “never taken lightly”.
