Contempt warning about speculation in press

In re Times Newspapers Ltd and Others 

Court of Appeal

“A judge in a criminal trial could prohibit the publication of a question-and answer-exchange that took place in open court when it should have occurred in camera. The publication of speculation as to the content of evidence that was given in camera could amount to a contempt of court.”
