The London-based owner of Chesterfield's former magistrates' court has taken action to improve security at the crime-hit building - after borough council lawyers stepped in.

As previously reported, extremely concerning images obtained by the Derbyshire Times showed hypodermic needles and heroin inside the Grade II-listed property - as well as extensive damage in rooms and excrement smeared up walls.
