    The trial of a man accused of raping and murdering a Hull student has been halted for a second day after a juror was unable to get to court due to the freezing conditions.

    Pawel Relowicz, 26, denies raping and killing 21-year-old University of Hull student Libby Squire (pictured), from High Wycombe in Buckinghmashire, and dumping her body in a river in the early hours of 1 February 2019.

    A judge at Sheffield Crown Court apologised to members of the jury who were present and told them the case could not proceed today because one of the jurors was "marooned on her estate".

    Mrs Justice Lambert said efforts to send a car to pick up the juror had also been hampered by the pandemic restrictions.

    "I'm really sorry about this. It's not been for want of trying," she said.

    The case was postponed on Thursday because three jurors were unable to attend due to snow, which had hit large parts of northern England.

    Quote Message: Can I thank you all but we can't continue today...Fingers crossed there is a thaw over the weekend so the ice and snow has gone." from Mrs Justice Lambert Judge
