Jury out again in Le Vell trial
The jury in the trial of Coronation Street's Michael Le Vell is to continue its deliberations.
The eight women and four male jurors have been told they must decide if the alleged victim is telling the truth or set out to "quite literally destroy the life" of the actor.
Le Vell, 48, who has played garage mechanic Kevin Webster in the ITV1 soap for 30 years, is accused of sexually assaulting and raping the youngster, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
Judge Michael Henshell told the jurors in the week-long trial at Manchester Crown Court that their assessment of the alleged victim was "critical in this case".
Le Vell, being tried under his real name of Michael Turner, denies five counts of rape, three of indecent assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child, and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.
The jury was sent out at 3.51pm on Monday to consider its verdicts but told by Judge Henshell he was not expecting any verdicts immediately and they should use the time left to select a foreman.
Jurors were brought back into court at 4.20pm and sent home to continue their deliberations at 10.30am.
