London: A teenager was so drunk she could not have consented to sex with former Wales football international Ched Evans, a court heard Tuesday as his rape charge retrial began. Evans, 27, is accused of raping a woman at a hotel in May 2011.

The Chesterfield striker is facing a two-week trial at Cardiff Crown Court. Evans was convicted of rape, but this was later quashed by the Court of Appeal, judge Nicola Davies told the jury.

Prosecutor Simon Medland said the woman, who cannot be named and is now in her 20s, had no memory of what happened to her and could not have given consent.
