Construction worker charged over Royal Court break-in


A 24-year-old construction worker has been charged with breaking into the Royal Court and causing thousands of pounds worth of damage in and outside the building.

Gage James Saville appeared in the Magistrate’s Court where he was charged with one count of malicious damage, one of criminally breaking into and entering the building and one of resisting arrest.

The charges relate to an incident which took place in the early hours of Christmas Eve.

Mr Saville was represented by Advocate Adam Harrison.

Assistant Magistrate Peter Harris presided over the hearing and decided that it was outside of his jurisdiction, ordering the case to be heard in the Royal Court.
