Jo Cox case: Thomas Mair will not offer court defence
The man accused of murdering MP Jo Cox will not give evidence in his defence, the Old Bailey has heard.

Thomas Mair, 53, is accused of murdering the Labour politician in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on 16 June, a week before the EU referendum vote.

The 41-year-old was shot and stabbed outside a constituency surgery.

Jurors heard that Mr Mair, who denies murder, said in his first court appearance "death to traitors - freedom for Britain" when asked his name.
