Former England footballer Adam Johnson has been found not guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child.

But the jury at Bradford Crown Court has yet to reach a verdict on a second count of the same charge. Judge Jonathan Rose has said he will accept a majority verdict.

The 28-year-old admitted grooming a 15-year-old girl and sexual activity with the teenager, relating to kissing her in his Range Rover, but denied the two more serious charges of sexual activity with a child, one involving oral sex and another involving digital penetration.

He was cleared of the oral sex charge this afternoon.

The charges against the former Sunderland FC winger arose from a meeting between Johnson and the girl in his car in County Durham on January 30 last year.
