The jury considering verdicts in the trial of public relations guru Max Clifford was sent home for the Easter holiday on Thursday.

After a second full day of deliberation at Southwark Crown Court in London, the jury was instructed to leave the court and to return to continue its discussions on Tuesday.

Celebrity publicist Clifford denies 11 counts of indecent assault against seven girls and women, dating between 1966 and 1984.

During the six-week trial, a juror was discharged after informing the judge that she knew a witness.

A female juror who did not attend court was discharged on Thursday.

Judge Anthony Leonard told the remaining six men and four women on the panel: "You will continue to deliberate as a jury of 10."

Clifford, 71, attended court Thursday in a blue blazer and a blue-and-white striped shirt.

The jury began considering their verdicts on Tuesday afternoon.
