"Ladies and gentlemen, that is all the evidence. And you must reach, if you can, a unanimous verdict. As you may know, the law allows me to, in certain circumstances, to accept a verdict which is not the verdict of you all. But those circumstances have not yet arisen. So, when you retire, I ask you to reach a verdict upon which each of you of you is agreed. Should however the time come when I accept a majority verdict I will call you back into court and give you a further direction.
You can take the exhibits with you, except the blue book. But I know you want to see that so I will pass that around that to you now because I received your note. Also, the CCTV, if you wish to see that, please send us a note and we can arrange for that to happen. If you wish to see the blue book again or any of the CCTV, obviously in relations to counts 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, or the blue book, please write a note and we will make arrangements for that to be done.
Please elect one of your number to chair your discussions, to be the person who will return your verdict."
"I am going to ask you to retire now just to make a start. You are not expected - can I be clear - you are not expected to reach a verdict now. We have discussed that we will come back on Tuesday, where you will start again with your deliberations.
Also, so you know, we will stop at 4.30 today in the usual way. So, at 4.30, I will bring you back; you will stop your deliberations then and come back on Tuesday to continue. But please make a start now. Thank you."
"But if it is something that needs to be paused or the jury particularly wish to see - if the jury wish to write us a note to say they would rather clip 1 or clip 2 or whatever the dates more than once, then they can give us a note and we can make sure that happens. So, perhaps we swear the jury out now. And if there are any requests for the CCTV, I am sure the jury can give that to us and we can play it for them when they come back in."
WordWave International Ltd trading as DTI hereby certify that the above is an accurate and complete record of the proceedings or part thereof.
