Social media legal guidelines to be published

Wed 04 Dec 2013

Facebook and Twitter users are going to be warned about what they can't say when commenting on court cases online.

Advice on what not to do on social media when it comes to commenting on court cases is being given out from today.

The legal warnings will be tweeted by the Attorney General's office and put on the Government's website. This comes after incidents where people have been commenting on court cases despite judges putting restrictions in place.

Bryony Taylor is a trainee vicar and social media consultant at CODEC at Durham University. She told Premier's News Hour she's pleased with this development.
