Why is someone from Abingdon, who committed an offence in Abingdon, being tried at Banbury Magistrates Court? Surely Oxford would deal with it!?

There is one "Bench" in Oxfordshire which sits at Banbury, Bicester and Oxford. Cases can be sent to any of the three Courthouses based on the availability of space and people. Seems sensible to me - that way neither victim or alleged offender are left waiting for the "local" court building to have a free slot.

No they just have to travel 30-40 miles and back, to a strange town.
As these were disqualification cases they presumably had to turn up in person and not plead by post as with some motoring cases, and probably had to do so by public transport, given their lack of licence/Insurance.
Whatever the rights and wrongs of the cases, it doesn't such much like local justice to me.
