Lack of funding blamed.
A Judge has branded delays for court hearings at Lincoln crown court as embarrassing and scandalous.
It's after Judge Sean Morris was told a man who faces charges of possessing indecent images of children couldn't appear in court before next January.
He replied by blaming a lack of funding for there not being three courts sitting all the time at Lincoln and that this wasn't acceptable...
Judge Morris finished by claiming he regretted the delay and found the whole thing 'acutely embarrassing.'
