The jury has been discharged in the trial of a 23 year-old woman accused of causing death by careless driving of a lollipop man.

The jury at her trial at Southampton Crown Court failed to reach a verdict. The prosecution has two weeks to decide whether to seek a retrial.

It was the second jury to have been discharged in connection with the case.

Mr Elsmore had worked at Queen's Inclosure Primary School in Waterlooville for about 10 years.
