Lord Judge (real name), Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, has issued guidance stating that representatives of the media and ‘legal commentators’ may send live, text-based messages from court without having to seek permission (subject to the possibility that their blogging or tweeting might need to be restricted in some cases); but members of the public must ask first, although that can be done informally by talking to court staff. Photography by anyone in court remains strictly no go, mobile phones must not be used and sound recording is possible only with permission.
