Trial halted after juror falls sick at fish lunch

A BUNDABERG District Court trial was adjourned to tomorrow after a member of the jury fell sick this afternoon.

The juror, who the NewsMail understands is allergic to fish, fell ill as a result of exposure to another person's dish.

The juror got sick quickly after and was confined to the jury room while the judge deliberated on the course of action to take.

The remaining members of the jury were sent home early for the day, with the matter scheduled to resume tomorrow morning.
