The jury in the Mark Mason murder trial are into a third day of deliberations.

Six men and six women retired to consider their verdicts last Thursday morning. Three men from Liverpool deny the fatal stabbing of the Rhyl father-of-two last October.

James Davies (21) of Stoneycroft, Anthony Baines (31) of Kensington and Mark Ennis (30) of Walton also deny maliciously wounding Justin Trickett and Sam Illidge with intent.

A fourth man, Jake Melia (21) from Aintree, has pleaded guilty to all charges and is awaiting sentencing.

The judge, Mrs Justice Nicola Davies, spent two days summing up the evidence at Mold Crown Court. She told the jury on Thursday to take as long as they need to reach a decision.

After a delay in their deliberations on Friday, the jury were sent home for the weekend. They reconvened on Monday after a large screen TV was installed to examine CCTV footage.
