BBC, ITN AND SKY NEWS STATEMENT ON CAMERAS IN COURT
The BBC, ITN and Sky News have issued a joint statement in response to today's Queen's Speech, which included the Crime and Courts Bill that lifts the ban on cameras in courtrooms in England and Wales.
In response to the announcement, the BBC, ITN and Sky News said:
"Following years of campaigning, we welcome this historic reform that marks an important step for democracy and open justice. The presence of cameras in our courtrooms will lead to greater public engagement and understanding of our legal system. We look forward to working closely with the judiciary and the Government to ensure that justice will now truly be seen to be done."
