BREAKING: Double murder trial jury out

The jury at the trial of a man accused of double murder, including a woman in Whitby, has retired to consider its verdict. James Allen is accused of killing Julie Davison at her home in the seaside resort in April, days after the murder of a man in Middlesborough.

Both victims were found with head injuries. James Allen was arrested after being spotted by a police officer in Leeds and denies killing the pair.
