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.
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.Set up a monthly gift
