Priscilla Coleman is ITN's resident court artist. She has made over a thousand court sketches, covering Britain's most historic legal cases, including Harold Shipman, Rose West, Ian Huntley, the Guinness trial, the Stephen Lawrence case and the Hutton inquiry.

But the job of the court room artist is having to adapt with the introduction of cameras in court. What effect will this have on her profession?

Bidding has now closed on Priscilla Coleman's drawing (above) for Children in Need.
