He was flying a Hawker Hunter jet in 2015 when it crashed onto the A27 leading to the deaths of 11 men.

The prosecution, led by Tom Kark QC, say that the tragedy was caused by 'pilot error'.

Mr Kark argued that Hill was 'cavalier' when it came to safety.

However Hill's defence barrister Karim Khalil QC argued that Hill was not in control of the jet during the flight, instead that he was cognitively impaired.

We will bring you the jury's verdict as soon as we have it.

The trial continues.
