The standard eyewitness identification procedure in the UK is to use a video parade which is shown to the witness twice before they are asked to make a decision. Previous research has shown that this practice does not necessarily increase the number of false alarms, it has also found that some odd attentional and memorial effects may be produced. The current study used eyetracking analysis to determine whether participant-witnesses view the second presentation of the video parade differently to the first presentation and also whether viewing behaviour is affected by the presence or absence of the target.
