NO verdict in the trial of Ryan Giggs will be reached until after the bank holiday weekend after the jury was sent home today.

There are now 11 members trying the former Wales manager on allegations of controlling or coercive behaviour and assault after one was discharged after becoming unwell.

The jury was sent home this afternoon, following a third day of deliberations, and will return to Manchester Crown Court to consider the case at 10.30am on Tuesday.

Judge Hilary Manley told the remaining seven women and four men of the jury: “The juror who was absent yesterday due to illness is unfortunately still not well enough to attend.

“This sort of situation arises in trials from time to time and it is appropriate for me to discharge him from his jury service and he will play no more part in this trial.

“You will now continue as a jury of 11.”

Giggs, 48, is on trial at Manchester Crown Court where he denies using controlling and coercive behaviour against Kate Greville, 38, between August 2017 and November 2020, assaulting her, causing actual bodily harm, and the common assault of her younger sister, Emma Greville, 26.
