    A murder trial has collapsed after a member of the jury complained that she couldn't bear the smell of another juror.

    The unnamed woman wrote a letter to the judge at the Old Bailey saying that the stench was so overpowering she was unable to concentrate on the evidence.

    As a result, Judge Wendy Joseph discharged the jury on Monday and ordered the trial to be re-started.

    The jurors had been hearing evidence over the death of 20-year-old Jamie Sanderson, who was fatally stabbed at the Oceana nightclub in Kingston, Surrey.
