The trial of a Russian dissident accused of possessing hundreds of indecent photographs of children has been halted.

Vladimir Bukovsky, 73, of Gilbert Road, Cambridge, denies 11 charges and was on trial at Cambridge Crown Court.

But after two days of evidence, Mr Bukovsky was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital with pneumonia.

The jury in the case has been discharged and the case adjourned until 19 January for review.
