Lawrence verdict now due in the new year
Jurors in the trial of two men accused of killing Stephen Lawrence have been sent home until after the holiday weekend, after failing to reach a verdict for a second day.
They resume deliberations on Tuesday.
Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, both from south-east London, deny murdering the black teenager, who was stabbed in Eltham, south-east London, in April 1993.
The prosecution is relying on new scientific evidence including a hair and blood spot, but the defence says clothing seized by police was later contaminated by other exhibits.
The trial, which began at the Old Bailey on 14 November, will move into its eighth week.
The historic court was opened especially this week during the holiday period so that the case could continue between Christmas and New Year.
