George and Pattie Harrison appear in court on drugs charges

George Harrison and his wife Pattie had an initial court appearance following their drugs bust six days earlier.

The hearing took place at Esher and Walton Magistrates' Court. The couple charged for cannabis possession, and were released on the surety of Apple's press officer Derek Taylor. They returned for the actual trial on 31 March 1969.

The court closed in 1993 and is now a youth club and theatre school.
