Judge Keith Cutler, presiding over the inquest as coroner, sent the 10 jurors home for an 18-day break over the festive period this afternoon. The inquest will reconvene at the Royal Courts of Justice on January 7.

Jurors retired to consider their verdict in the case at 3.09pm last Wednesday, and have since spent five full days in deliberation.

They are tasked with giving answers to five key questions in order to arrive at one of three possible conclusions: that the 29-year-old was killed unlawfully, killed lawfully, or reach an open conclusion.

The judge said the jury should reach its decisions “on the evidence and the evidence alone”.
