The Supreme Court has reserved judgement in Joan Collins' appeal over a rejection by the the High Court of her challenge to the €31bn promissory notes.

The Independent TD claims the 2009 issuing of the controversial IOUs to bailout Anglo Irish Bank and other financial institutions was unconstitutional.

The appeal concluded before a six-judge panel today, following the death of Mr Justice Adrian Hardiman last month.

The court will deliver judgement at a later date - but a fresh appeal will be needed if the panel is split on their decision.
