Jury re-traces last moments.

THE jury in the Geraldine Palk trial was today re-tracing her last moments before she was abducted, sexually assaulted and stabbed to death.

The seven men and five women, who are sitting on the trial at Bristol Crown Court, were due to arrive in Cardiff before lunchtime to look at key locations featured in the case. Mark David Hampson is accused of killing 26-year-old Geraldine in a frenzied knife attack yards from her home in Bracken Place, Fairwater, just three days before Christmas in 1990. He denies her murder.

The jury was travelling to Cardiff from Bristol by coach, accompanied by defence and prosecution barristers, John Charles Rees, QC, and Patrick Harrington QC, as well as the judge, the Honourable Mrs Justice Hallett.

The trip was expected to take in Yates's Wine Lodge in Westgate Street, known at the time of the murder as Jackson's, where Geraldine spent her last night drinking with work colleagues.
