Moran trial: Court is hearing more evidence from prosecution

The court is hearing more evidence from the prosecution this morning, in the trial of Margaret Moran.

The former Labour politician was found unfit to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court due to mental health issues, so the proceedings are taking place in her absence.

Rather than finding her guilty, jurors have to decide whether Moran did commit the acts alleged in the charges, and whether they amount to the offences with which she is charged.
