The families of the victims gasped and were in tears as the first verdict was read out.

The judge thanked them for the dignified way they have behaved.

I can see that you are upset and you are absolutely entitled to be but despite being upset you have behaved in a way which does you great credit."

Mr Justice Andrew Edis

He also told the jury they had "discharged a heavy burden" in a case which was "not easy to try" because of the technical difficulty and amount of sadness and tragedy.
