Judges Procession: Which roads will be closed in Preston tomorrow

It marks the official start of the legal year and has been a feature for generations.

Judges, along with civic leaders, court officers, city councillors, regional high sheriffs and senior police officers walked from the city’s Sessions House to Preston Minster for a special service.

And the traditional event means that some of the main city centre arteries will be closed while the procession from court to church goes ahead.
