Stuart Olding and Paddy Jackson both deny raping the woman

The jury involved in the Belfast trial, in which a 21-year-old woman says she was raped by two Irish international rugby players, has visited the scene of the alleged crime.

The nine men and three women on the jury were brought to the house in south Belfast this morning.

Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding are accused of raping the woman in an upstairs bedroom in June 2016.

A third defendant, Blane McIlroy, faces a charge of exposure and a fourth, Rory Harrison, is accused of withholding information and perverting the course of justice.

All four defendants deny the charges.

The second week of proceedings at Laganside Court concluded yesterday and the trial will resume on Monday.
