Sky News campaigns for cameras in court
More than 15,000 people signed Sky News' online petition for the leaders' debates, leading to an agreement last month between the three main parties and a joint team from broadcasters.
As an ex-Crown Court reporter I will sign Sky's petition. I think cameras have been kept out of court for far too long. In an age of 24 hour news we could get excellent coverage of important and newsworthy court cases if cameras were allowed in. Justice should be seen to be done.
