The BBC are reporting that mobile phone footage apparently showing the inside of a Scottish courtroom during a case has been posted on the video sharing website YouTube. It is said to show three youths appearing at the High Court in Glasgow earlier this year, where they later admitted beating a young man to death.

The clip called “the troops in the high court” lasts less than three minutes. A spokesman for the Crown Office said Strathclyde Police had been instructed to investigate. If the footage is genuine, it would be a breach of the law. Whoever shot the film faces a potential contempt of court charge. Recording of any kind is banned in Scottish courts, except under special circumstances. A spokeswoman for the Scottish Courts Service said it would be launching an investigation.

  1. I decided to check this out on a few websites I manage.
    On the first I was surprised to find all days were the same except a massive spike on wednesdays. Then I realised it was a university website and wednesday afternoons are free of lectures so students can play sports, or surf the web.
    So I checked another website, but I think that’s highly squeed by what days have interesting stories posted.

    You can get so much information about individual websites, it’s easy to get carried away reading into all the numbers.

    Gone are the days when I had to wait until 7pm for off-peak phone calls so I could connect to the internet, download the days e-mails, and then read them offline.
