Two British women are appearing at a court in Barbados to support the man accused of raping them.

Researcher Dr Rachel Turner from Hertfordshire and Diane Davies of Anglesey were attacked within days of each other in October 2010 as they walked to a beach in Holetown St James.

Barbadian Derek Crawford, 47, has been charged but both women, who have waived their right to anonymity, told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire why they believe he is innocent.
