Judge Mark Horton brings 'courtroom' to Bristol's Orchard School

One of Bristol's judges has gone back to school in an attempt to explain to children how the law works and why it is so important they understand the judicial system.

Judge Mark Horton guided pupils at Orchard School through a mock trial with the children acting as the jury.

They watched a reconstruction of the crime and heard speeches from the prosecution and the defence.

Steve Brodie reports.
