Jury Fails To Reach Verdict In Trial Over Lollipop Man's Death
A retrial is likely in the case of a 22-year-old woman accused of causing the death of a Hampshire lollipop man by careless driving after a jury failed to come to a verdict.
Lauren Paul, of Ramblers Way, Waterlooville, denies a charge in relation to the death of Raymond Elsmore following the incident last December.
