A JURY has failed to reach a verdict at the trial of Daniel Smith.

Smith, 38, of Victoria Road, Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury, has been on trial at Leeds Crown Court on charges of aggravated burglary and assault by beating, relating to an incident in August 2011.

The trial started last Monday and the jury was sent out yesterday lunchtime, but today it could not even reach a majority verdict so Judge Guy Kearl dismissed jury members.

A provisional retrial date has been set for later in the year.
