Jury still out in Trafalgar Square killing trial

Jurors trying three teenagers accused of killing a 62-year-old man in Trafalgar Square began a fourth day of deliberations at the Old Bailey today.

Ian Baynham is said to have been subjected to homophobic taunts before being knocked to the ground, then kicked and stamped on.

He died 18 days after the alleged attack, which took place in central London last September.

Joel Alexander, 19, Rachel Burke, 18, and Ruby Thomas, 18, all from south east London, deny manslaughter.
