A teenage girl who kicked and stamped on a gay man in central London acted in a "reprehensible" way but there was no evidence she caused his death, her lawyer told a court.

Ruby Thomas, 18, is accused of the manslaughter of 62-year-old Ian Baynham, who died 18 days after being attacked in Trafalgar Square in September last year.

Jurors have been told that Thomas and a second girl, Rachel Burke, kicked him after he was knocked to the ground by fellow teenager Joel Alexander. The Old Bailey has heard that a confrontation began after Thomas hurled homophobic abuse at Mr Baynham and his friend.
