The jury in a trial of a man accused of having hatched a plan to burn down his former workplace will resume its deliberations tomorrow.

Ricky Turner, 57, who formerly worked for SPX Ltd in Great Yarmouth, is alleged to have put up Aaron Cockrell to carry out the arson which caused £250,000 worth of damage and about £600,000 of losses to the company.

Norwich Crown Court has been told that Cockrell, 41, of Yarmouth Road, Ormesby St Margaret, has already admitted arson.

Turner, of Lawn Avenue, Great Yarmouth, has denied being involved in the arson attack on SPX between February 12 and February 15, in 2015.

The jury was sent out to consider its verdicts at just after 12.40pm today (Tuesday, June 27) but will resume deliberations tomorrow morning after being sent home at 3.55pm.
