Video evidence: Good enough for Jon Venables and now coming to the Football League

It was good enough for murderer Jon ­Venables in his latest trial and it will be introduced as an experiment by the FA this season.

Clubs will be spared a meeting with the FA disciplinary chief, famed for his leniency. His nickname? The Hanging Judge!
