Sky News, UK

October 3, 2000: Scotland Yard have decided they cannot release a photograph of a jailed sex attacker because it might infringe his human rights.

The Human Rights Act - the most fundamental change to the justice system since the Magna Carta became law in Britain on Monday.

It guarantees a right to life, a fair trial and freedom of expression. Critics have already called it a "charter for crackpots" and a goldmine for lawyers.
