9 More arrests over naming of Sheffield United's Victim on Twitter

Wednesday, May 2nd 2012 01:00

Nine more people have been arrested as part of the investigation into the naming on Twitter of the victim in Sheffield United striker Ched Evans's rape case.

Five men and four women, all from north Wales, were arrested and are in custody for questioning at St Asaph police station, North Wales Police said.

It brings the total number of arrests to 12 after three men were arrested in South Yorkshire last week and later released on bail.

Sheffield United striker Evans was jailed for five years on April 20 for raping a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room.

He denied the allegation and plans to appeal against the verdict.
