Supreme Court's 'common sense' verdict on minor convictions
18 June 2014 Last updated at 14:16 BST
Certain past minor cautions and convictions should remain part of a protected private life and not have to be disclosed in criminal record checks, the Supreme Court has ruled.
The court upheld a decision by the Court of Appeal in the case of a man who, when applying for a job, was forced to reveal two police cautions he had received aged 11.
Solicitor Mike Pemberton, who represents the unnamed Manchester man, said the decision was a "common sense ruling".
