From 7 August 2017 new court proceedings came into force meaning anyone entering court, including solicitors and barristers, are now being asked to sip the drinks they are carrying to prove they are not filled with harmful substances or alcohol.
The rules will apply to all ‘customers’ who enter the building with an unsealed ‘drink can/carton/coffee cup/flask’.
The rules, which if breached will result in refusal of entry to the court, will also sometimes apply to sealed bottles.
Her Majesty’s Courts & Tribunal Services said if they did not introduce this rule then the alternative would be to ban all liquids like at airports, to ensure security.
