Cameras to be allowed in English courts for the first time

"Cameras are set to be allowed to broadcast from inside court rooms for the first time, after the House of Commons granted approval.

The Court of Appeal ruled that the father had a right to know his secret accuser's identity

From next month filming will be allowed at criminal and civil hearings in the Court of Appeal during legal argument and judgments.

The Government is also planning to extend filming to allow the broadcasting of sentencing remarks in Crown Court cases.

However, unlike in the United States and some other countries in the world, there are no plans to show witnesses or defendants in court.

The proposal will now go before the House of Lords, but limited filming is expected to begin next month."
