The jury in the trial of a father and son accused of beating Richard Moore to death yesterday visited the scene of the man's dying moments.

The men and women, accompanied by Judge Peter Jacobs and barristers from the prosecution and defence,

spent more than an hour at McDonald's at Hay Hill, Norwich, where 21-year-old Mr Moore was mortally wounded on March 21.

Gerard Stonehouse, 48, and his 18-year-old son Jonathan Stonehouse, both of Woodcock Road, Norwich, deny manslaughter.

The trial has heard the incident started when Mr Moore's pregnant girlfriend, Jemma Todd, accused Jonathan Stonehouse of staring at her and that Mr Moore stood up in her defence.

The restaurant was closed to the public for much of yesterday morning, its doors flanked by police.
