One of the jurors at the Hillsborough inquests has been discharged – on the first full day of deliberations.

The jury of seven women and three men were sent out at 2.05pm yesterday after sitting through 293 days of evidence.

But, this morning, one of the women jurors has reportedly been discharged on medical grounds.

Deliberations into the disaster on April 15, 1989, will continue with six women and three men.

The inquests at Birchwood Park, Warrington, started on March 31, 2014, and were originally set to last six to nine months.
