Photographs of the bloody scene at the house of Oscar Pistorius have been shown to court at the South African Olympic athlete’s trial in Pretoria.

His defence team say the police crime scene photographer failed to label his pictures correctly.

Mr Pistorius denies murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year, saying he thought she was an intruder.

The prosecution says he intentionally shot the model after an argument at his house on Valentine’s Day 2013.

Photographer Bennie Van Staden was being cross-examined for the second day by defence lawyer Barry Roux on details of when and where he took some photos and what he moved at the home of Mr Pistorius.

His testimony continued after the start of Tuesday’s proceedings, the 12th day of the trial in the capital, was delayed by more than an hour after the defence team asked him to produce discs containing master copies of photographs.
