Judge Holt said that they always tried to make sure that everyone in front of the court had a fair trial.

He said: “That's what we're trying to do here but that means having to rely on your patience.”

He said they could not do any more on Tuesday and was sending them home with the case expected to resume at 10.30am on Wednesday.
