Cameras to Broadcast from Crown Courts

Limited filming in crown courts will be allowed under new proposals announced by the Government today. The move will mean that judgements made by High Court and Senior Circuit judges can now be filmed, although no other part of the case will be shown.

Robert Buckland, the Lord Chancellor, said in a statement:

“This government, alongside the judiciary, is committed to improving public understanding of our justice system and allowing cameras into the Crown Court will do just that. It will ensure our courts remain open and transparent and allow people to see justice being delivered to the most serious of offenders.”
