Ched Evans: Footballer has rape conviction quashed
Footballer Ched Evans has had his conviction for rape quashed at the Court of Appeal in London, but will face a new trial.
The ex-Wales international was jailed in 2012 for raping a 19-year-old at a Premier Inn near Rhyl, Denbighshire.
The former Sheffield United, Manchester City and Norwich player was released from jail in October 2014 after serving half of his five-year term.
Mr Evans, 27, who has always denied raping the woman, stayed silent in the face of reporters' questions as he left court.
