The BBC reports that the jury in Vicky Pryce’s trial for perverting the course of justice has been discharged after failing to reach a verdict. This comes after almost 4 days of deliberation. This morning they handed the judge a list of ten questions which the BBC have reported here.
A retrial with a new jury will start next Monday. It’s likely that sentencing of her ex husband, Chris Huhne, will be delayed until after this new trial.
As this matter remains sub judice, personal comments about either Vicky or Chris won’t be published at least until the trial has concluded and then only if they’re in accordance with our published comments policy.
