A jury in the trial of two men accused of raping a school girl more than 30 years ago at Bardwell has today been discharged.

After considering legal submissions, Mr Recorder Richard Atcheley said the trial would now take place at Ipswich Crown Court in early January with another jury.

Phillip Barty, 54, of Bury Street, Stowmarket and Robert Reynolds, 77, of Kirk Michael, Isle of Man will remain on bail until the trial begins.
