Following an application by STV, permission has now been granted to film Lord Bracadale sentencing David Gilroy at the High Court in Edinburgh at 10.00am on 18 April 2012.  This was approved by Lord Hamilton the Lord President and Lord Justice General.

The camera will focus on the judge and no other person will feature in the footage except the Macer and the Clerk.  The accused will not be filmed.

Filming will commence when the plea in mitigation has concluded.

The footage will be made available immediately afterwards via satellite feed.

This is the first time that permission has been granted to film during a sentencing diet in the High Court.
