Judge warns jury to set aside emotions during deliberations

The judge at the Stephen Lawrence murder trial has told jurors to set aside any emotion in their deliberations.

David Norris and Gary Dobson deny murdering the black teenager in south-east London in 1993. The defence says that forensic evidence against them was contaminated.

The judge said sympathy for the Lawrence family, or anger at the nature of the attack, could not guide the jury's verdict.

Tom Symonds reports.
