LORD Phillips of Worth Matravers, the most senior judge in England and Wales, led more than 70 people in the first Bournemouth Legal Walk.

Several local judges joined Lord Phillips, President of the Supreme Court, for the event organised by Bournemouth and District Law Society.

Others taking part included court staff, solicitors, legal executives, barristers, trainee solicitors, paralegals, students and staff members of the Law Faculty of Bournemouth University.

The four-mile walk around the town, which was sponsored by chartered accountants and business advisers Princecroft Willis, raised more than £500 for the South West Legal Support Trust.

Fiona Knight, BDLS Immediate Past President, said the walk coincided with similar events across the country including London, Birmingham, Cambridge, Guildford and Newbury.

She added: “It was a great success and we’re particularly grateful to Princecroft Willis for sponsoring what we hope will become an annual fixture in the local legal calendar.”
