Drama at Bailey High Court case

Marie Farrell has dramatically walked out of Ian Bailey's High Court action mid-cross examination.

The Schull shopkeeper has spent days giving evidence in the former journalist's wrongful arrest case against the state and Garda commissioner.

She left the witness box after she was asked to reveal the man she was with on the night leading up to Sophie Toscan du Plantier's murder in December 1996.

She has claimed Garda statements in which she identified Ian Bailey at a bridge near the murder scene early that morning were false and made under pressure.
