A serious fraud trial has been halted by a judge because the defendants were unable to get legal representation following cuts to legal aid.
The Prime Minister's brother, Alexander Cameron QC, argued that the trial could not go ahead because "The state has failed to provide adequate representation to allow a trial to take place."
Mr Cameron QC was representing some of the defendants for free as they tried to get their trial for fraud halted.
The judge sitting in the case ruled that there was no prospect of a fair trial
