THE FIRST CPS lawyer to prosecute in a Crown Court has left the service to join a set of chambers as a barrister.
Philip Drinkwater, a former branch crown prosecutor, has been made a tenant at Exeter's newly named Colleton Chambers, which has just relocated.
He made history with the CPS in 1986 when he prosecuted a case at Truro Crown Court. Drinkwater, who was a solicitor, puts his departure from the CPS and his requalification as a barrister down to his love of advocacy. "I enjoy advocacy more than anything. At the CPS I had a lot of managerial duties," he said.
Last week his chambers moved to plush new offices in Exeter. It was called Barnfield Chambers but is now named Colleton Chambers after the crescent it has moved to.
"The building is three times as big as our old home and has far better conference facilities," said senior clerk Philip Alden.
