One of the UK's most senior judges has said women who wear veils should be made to show their faces when giving evidence in court.
Baroness Hale says seeing faces can be important and necessary, when identity or recognition is at stake.
As the Deputy President of the Supreme Court, her opinion carries a lot of weight.
She told the Evening Standard that ways have ‘got to be found’ to make sure face coverings are removed for key parts of court hearings.
She added that there ‘must come a point’ at which judges insist veils are lifted.
At present judges can't force people to remove veils. Lady Hale said the use of screens could help ‘accommodate’ religious beliefs.
Journalist Belle Lupton joined The Evening News to go through this subject in more detail.
