Mosque killer Brenton Tarrant will not speak at his own sentencing.

It has been confirmed tonight that he will make no personal submissions in court tomorrow before his sentence is handed down.

He is representing himself, but a lawyer instructed to act as stand by counsel will make "brief" submissions after being instructed by the killer.

The sentencing will start at 10am.
