THE judge's summing up at the Norwich Crown Court murder trial of two Ipswich men has been adjourned after a male juror was taken ill today.

Judge David Mellor began to sum up the case yesterday against Louis Carroll and Steven Lowe who deny the murder of Phil Hoi Phat Lui, whose parents live in Felixstowe.

He was to continue his summing up today before the jury of seven men and five women retired to begin their deliberations but after the juror became unwell, the case was adjourned until tomorrow.

It is thought that a verdict still could be returned before the weekend.

Carroll, 31, of Crocus Close and Steven Lowe, 24, of Spring Road, both deny the murder of Vietnamese man Mr Lui, during attacks both inside and outside Kartouche Nightclub, on August 14, last year.

The jury must also find a verdict for Toby Woods, 24, of Cosmeston Street, Cardiff, who is alleged to have committed a violent disorder act, also on Mr Lui, that night.

He denies the charge.
