The trial of N-Dubz rapper Dappy has been adjourned after a juror was taken ill.

The 25-year-old is accused at Guildford Crown Court of affray, two charges of common assault and one of assault by beating.

But on day six of the case, a male juror began to feel faint and Judge Neil Stewart adjourned proceedings until Tuesday (January 15) morning.

He told the jury: "Here we go again, we have real life interfering in the best laid plans."

Dappy, charged under his real name of Costadinos Contostavlos, is on trial alongside Kieran Vassell, 25, of Hammersmith, west London, and Kalonji Stewart, 32, of Harborne, Birmingham, who both face a single charge of affray.

A fourth man, Alfred Miller, 28, of Brentford, west London, has pleaded guilty to affray and his case was adjourned for sentence at the end of the trial.

The case relates to a fight which broke out at a Guildford petrol station in the early hours of February 28 last year leaving three men with facial injuries.
