A judge momentarily halted a High Court trial so he could send an email warning someone that he was running late.

Judge Lionel Persey was overseeing a dispute involving Rangers Football Club and Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley.

A barrister told the judge at about 4.30pm on Monday that he needed another 10 minutes to finish asking a witness questions.

The judge said he had a "telephone meeting" arranged for 1635 and told lawyers: "Just let me send an email."

He then halted the trial while he typed on a mobile from the judge's bench.

Lawyers representing a company in the Sports Direct Group say Rangers are in breach of obligations under a deal relating to replica kit.

Rangers dispute the claims.

The trial is due to end later this week.
