Thanks for pointing out the incorrect placing of the comma.

comment Jury was divided or Jury were divided?
Thanks for the explanation. My question was because of the presence of the collective noun. As regards your note: Your note on British English does not seem to be consistent when the use of the pronoun 'she' comes to play. For example: England 'are' the winners. 'She, now leads the medals' tally. Are the foregoing pair of sentences consistent / correct?
