He was advised by police attending the service not to try to use his megaphone to protest, advice he heeded.
The Legal Service is the occasion of the swearing in of The new High Sheriff of Somerset.
The Office of High Sheriff is at least 1,000 years old, having its roots in Saxon times, before the Norman conquest. It is the oldest continuous secular office under the Crown.
The High Sheriff is the Sovereign's representative in the County for all matters relating to the Judiciary and the maintenance of law and order.
