The jury in the M62 gun trial has been sent home for the night.

The judge in the case completed his summing up this morning, before sending the jury out to consider its verdict just before 11.30am.

At 4pm, the jury was sent home overnight and will continue deliberating in the morning.

For more than a week, three men have been standing trial accused of a firearms conspiracy following the police operation in which Yassar Yaqub was shot dead by a police marksman on the sliproad of the M62 motorway at junction 24 at Ainley Top, near Huddersfield.

Moshin Amin, who was driving the Audi in which Mr Yaqub was travelling, and his co-accused Rexhino Arapaj and David Butlin are appearing at Leeds Crown Court nearly two years after the fatal incident.

They are each facing a charge of conspiracy to possess firearms and ammunition with intent to endanger life.

Butlin, 39, of Huddersfield Road in Holmfirth, is also facing a charge of having a push dagger as an offensive weapon on the day of the shooting.

Amin, 32, of Manchester, Arapaj, 28, of Thornlea Road in Crosland Moor, and Butlin deny the offences.
