Ched Evans: Convicted rapist and footballer issues apology

Footballer Ched Evans has apologised "for the effects" of his actions in 2011 but continues to maintain his innocence over his rape conviction.

Evans made the statement after Oldham Athletic withdrew their offer to sign him as a player.

He was jailed in April 2012 for raping a woman, 19, at a north Wales hotel.

The club decided against taking him on following threats made to sponsors, staff and fans.

Jenny Rees reports.
