Jury shown CCTV footage during Sonny Grey murder trial
The jury at the Sonny Grey murder trial has been shown CCTV footage of a vehicle which the prosecution alleges the two men accused of killing the Lincoln pensioner used on the day of the attack.
The 70-year-old died on October 31, 2011 after being attacked and "tortured" in his home two days earlier.
Peter Joyce QC showed the six men and six women a series of footage which showed a Volkswagen Touareg in the Westwick Gardens area in the hours before the attack which led to Mr Grey's death.
The prosecution then alleges the same vehicle is seen on the A46 by an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) camera heading towards Newark.

Nottingham Crown Court was told the same vehicle which the defendants are said to have been in was then captured on camera in various parts of Newark before heading to the Tolney Lane Caravan Park.
Some 50 minutes later it is said the same vehicle made the journey back to Lincoln.
This time, the ANPR camera showed a different number plate.
The prosecution allege it had been altered.
Jurors were then shown images that the prosecution say shows the vehicle park near Mr Grey's house and three people are seen entering Westwick Gardens on foot.
Half an hour later, CCTV shows three people running back towards the direction where the car was parked.
Rocky Curtis, 25, of Newbridge Lane, Wisbech and Robert Holmes, 24, of Redmoor Lane, Wisbech, deny murder.
The trial continues.
