The final hours of Grace Millane's life were shown to a High Court jury on Thursday.

A compilation of hours of CCTV footage of the British backpacker on a three-hour date in central Auckland with the man accused of her murder.

The High Court heard that Grace messaged a friend during the evening to say: "I clicked with him so well..." and that she would update her the next day.

That was the last time she heard from her friend. Ms Millane's mother broke down and left the courtroom as a police officer described explicit photos found on an iPhone that the Crown says were taken of her daughter's body.

RNZ reporter Sarah Robson and camera operator Dan Cook are covering the case.
