While Katie Hopkins may be making jokes, the trial continues.

Oscar Pistorius, charged with the Valentine's Day 2013 murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, pleaded not guilty on the first day of his trial in Pretoria.

The Paralympian - known to many as the Blade Runner - is said to have fired four shots through a locked bathroom door, hitting Steenkamp three times inside the bathroom.
