View Full Version : Media reporting on court cases in the UK

Twenty years ago, when I was a reporter in the UK, journalists were limited to ten points when reporting on court cases. Is that still true? And if so, what are they?? I looked online but couldn't find an answer.

I've not heard of the 10 points limitation before, but the Press Complaints Commission has issued guidelines on court reporting here (http://www.pcc.org.uk/news/index.html?article=OTg=), which may be of some help.
