“As things stand the Waterside Court Reporting Centre remains closed and there are still no interviewing facilities on the Waterside Estate. We continue to operate with temporary facilities to conduct Interviews at the vacated DWP Job Centre in Hunslet supported by interviews being undertaken in our Newcastle Link House Office.
A number of interviews continue to be completed via Video Conferencing Facilities co-ordinated from Sheffield. These interviews are being conducted via visa hubs nationally, with the interviewing officers and interpreters being in Sheffield.
The interim contingency plans for reporting remain the same, with reporting at Weetwood police station remaining restricted to e.g. to High Harm cases etc.”
