AROUND 80 people were left standing outside a pub after South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court was evacuated due to a power cut.

It’s not clear what caused the power cut, but there is building work ongoing in court three of the building in Elm Street, Ipswich.

Everyone forced to leave the building had to gather outside the Black Horse Pub, the emergency evacuation point for the court.

Part of the court has now been reopened.
