He said journalists should "know better than to approach a juror in a criminal trial".

Justice Byrne told the jury the media was in a separate room which was why they had not seen them in the courtroom.

He told them the media could see and hear the courtroom.

Justice Byrne described what had happened as "untoward conduct" at first blush and he hoped it would not happen again.

Jurors are not visible on the screens in the media room.

Media cannot get access to the courtroom because of the huge public interest in the case which has people lining up from 5.30am to ensure a seat in the public gallery.
