"A judge cannot lightly discharge a juror. That is particularly so in a case which is likely to take a long time. As I am confident will happen in this case, all members of the jury must do their best to work together. We shall, therefore, continue with the full complement of 11 jurors."

Liverpool is staging a massive spectacle this week to mark 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. And the good news is it brings back the Giant puppets from Royal de Luxe - the famous French Street Theatre Group.
They include the hugely popular little girl giant and her playful companion - the dog Xolo who stands 9ft tall. He's the fastest puppet of them all and can travel 4km an hour through the city's streets. It takes 20 puppeteers to operate him.
But this time around for Memories of August 1914 the real star of the show is the Grandmother. She's 85 and is described as tough, daring and mischievous but full of tenderness.
Her steps are small, she needs a walking stick and her body sways dis-jointed by age. She lives in a wheelchair and her veiny hands are partially affected by arthritis. But the poignant and entertaining story follows her past and present. Last time the Giants were in Liverpool it was in 2012 to mark 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic. They attracted 800,000 spectators.
