Trial: Shooting trial adjourned until Monday

A jury at the Maidenhead tattoo parlour shooting trial will continue to consider its verdicts on Monday.

Four men have been standing trial at Reading Crown Court over the attack at Fantasy Fine Line in St Mark's Road on April 11.

The jury retired shortly before 12pm on Monday and after nearly 13 hours of deliberation Judge Zoe Smith informed members at 12.20pm yesterday that they could return majority verdicts.

But shortly after 2pm yesterday the jury was sent home for the day when one member fell ill. The case has now been adjourned until Monday.

Anthony Cooke, 31, from Bedford and Leon Dorman, 30, from Dunstable are each charged with conspiracy to rob, possession of a firearm with intent, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of wounding with intent.

Joseph Gentle, 22, of no fixed abode and Drizz James, 22, from Luton are charged with conspiracy to rob and possession of a firearm with intent.

They all deny the charges.
