The Justice Secretary has come under renewed pressure to allow television cameras into the country’s court rooms.

The Head of Sky News, who is spearheading the campaign to televise court cases, has written an open letter to Kenneth Clarke urging him to take action. John Ryley said the public would have better understood controversial sentences passed on those involved in recent rioting and looting if judges’ remarks had been televised. Broadcasters have been pressing for some years for cameras to be allowed into courts, but at present cameras – including video cameras – are banned from courts by section 41 of the Criminal Justice Act 1925.
