Doormen trial jury to retire.

THE jury in the Bangor nightclub doormen manslaughter trial is expected to be sent out to consider their verdicts today.

Mr Justice Pitchford will complete his summing up at the start of the fifth week of the Mold Crown Court trial this morning.

Head doorman at Joops nightclub, rugby player Colin Christopher Parry, 37, of Maes Hyfryd, Llanfair PG, and doorman and builder Rhodri Thomas, 32, of Graig Fawr Farm, Gaerwen, a member of the Territorial army, both deny a charge of manslaughter.

The court has heard they pinned 30-year-old body builder Hywel Hughes down on the street outside the club crushing him so he could not breathe.

He was picked up by police. Mr Hughes died later in hospital.
