Tweeters told to pay footballer's rape victim

Nine people have been ordered to pay £624 each to a woman raped by footballer Ched Evans after they admitted naming her on Facebook and Twitter.

The former Sheffield United and Wales striker was jailed for five years in April for raping the 19-year-old.

Christopher Hutchings, a lawyer and social media expert, told the BBC the case was a lesson about the dangers of careless talk on the internet.
