Super secure storage – or the perfect stay for those friends you really don’t like

A two-bed flat in a converted magistrates court is available to rent for £ 750 a month, and tenants can use the cells for storage.

The old building has had a makeover with two refurbished bedrooms kitted out with new carpets.

There is also a plush kitchen and bathrooms in the pad.

But the original holding cells in the basement are still there and can be used as “storage at additional cost.”

They still have the old metal security doors and there are bars in the corridor.

It used to be Wakefield Magistrates Court in West Yorkshire which closed in 2016.

All cases were moved to Leeds.
