The jury has gone out in the trial of an Indian restaurant owner accused of killing a customer who died from an allergic reaction to a curry.

Paul Wilson, 38, suffered a severe anaphylactic shock in January 2014 after eating a takeaway from the Indian Garden in Easingwold, North Yorkshire.

Mohammed Zaman, 52, denies manslaughter, perverting the course of justice and six food safety offences.

Jurors at Teesside Crown Court have retired to consider the verdicts.

The restaurateur, of Aylesham Court, Huntington, is accused of cutting corners with ingredients by using cheaper groundnut powder, containing peanuts, rather than almond powder.

The jury was sent home on Friday and are expected to resume their deliberations on Monday.
