7 March 2016, 14:43

The jury in the trial of a teenager accused of murdering a school boy has retired to consider its verdict.

Bailey Gwynne, 16, died from a single knife wound after a fight at Cults Academy in Aberdeen on October 28 last year.

A 16-year-old youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denies murder. His trial at the city's High Court is now in its fifth day.

The 15 men and women of the jury retired to consider their verdict after hearing closing submissions from the prosecution and defence, followed by legal directions from judge Lady Stacey.

The judge told them to take as long as they need to reach their decision and said she can take their verdict at any time.
