The Sheffield United and Wales footballer Ched Evans has been found guilty of rape.

The 23-year-old striker was jailed for five years today for raping a teenager who was "too drunk to consent" to sex as two of his friends watched and tried to film it on a mobile phone.

Ched Evans was found guilty of raping the then 19-year-old at a hotel following a night out in Rhyl, north Wales, last May.

His co-defendant, Port Vale defender and former Chesterfield FC loanee Clayton McDonald, was found not guilty of the same charge by a jury at Caernarfon Crown Court.
