Cameras are set to be allowed in the Court of Appeals in England from today, as a 90 year ban is lifted.

The move comes following a ten year campaign from broadcasters such as Sky to allow cameras in courtrooms.

However, there are restrictions on what the cameras will show: the judge and lawyers will be seen, but the defendants and witnesses will not.

Earlier this year in Scotland, a trial was filmed and shown on TV in a programme called The Murder Trial, showing Nat Fraser’s trial on the charge of murder of his wife Arlene Fraser.

The Fraser trial was only broadcast following the permission of all participants, including Fraser himself, who was convicted during the trial.
