Holidays are supposed to be a time to switch off – not so for the Gazette’s Monidipa Fouzder. Our colleague didn’t fancy travelling to Portugal then doing a 10-day quarantine, so opted to visit Newcastle instead. But while fellow visitors headed down Quayside to walk across Gateshead Millennium Bridge, she was more interested in the nearby law courts.

Returning home, she posted a holiday photo on Twitter and was relieved to discover she’s not the only one with such an unusual hobby. Solicitor Sue James, chief executive of Legal Action Group, shared a photo of the beautiful Supreme Court building in Darwin, Australia. Anyone else? Email your best court photo to
