Ched Evans: Sheffield United will not let convicted rapist train

Sheffield United have retracted their offer to let convicted rapist Ched Evans use their training facilities.

The club had been heavily criticised for agreeing to allow Evans to train at the club after his release from prison.

Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill stated that she wanted her name removed from one of the Bramall Lane stands should he play for United again.

The club said reaction to their initial decision "has been at an intensity that could not have been anticipated".

Dan Roan reports.
