This morning as the court commenced Lord Bracadale, the presiding judge addressed the jury to tell them no more evidence would be heard today.
Lord Bracadale said "I have to tell you that Mr Sheridan is unwell. You will see that he is not in court Yesterday afternoon he went to see his doctor who certified that he is unfit to attend court at present."
The judge then added " "The doctor will review the position on Thursday. Mr Sheridan himself wishes, if at all possible, to continue the trial on Friday." before concluding "In these circumstances, there is nothing else to do, but adjourn the case until Friday morning."
