A double murder suspect has been removed from the dock for disrupting his trial. James Allen was sent to the cells by the judge for interrupting the questioning of a witness.
He's accused of murdering a pensioner in Middlesbrough and a woman in Whitby last April. The drama followed angry exchanges between his defence team and another witness earlier in the day.
