Ireland's rugby players not guilty of rape

Ireland rugby internationals Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding have been acquitted of rape after a nine-week trial.

The teammates had always denied raping the same woman in south Belfast in June, 2016.

Jackson was also found not guilty of sexual assault, a charge he also denied. Paddy Jackson thanked the judge and the jury for giving him a fair trial.

His teammate was silent, but their attorney did made a speech for the press, saying that the whole investigation was not very well organized.

After a nine-week trial, the jury found the pair's friend Blane McIlroy not guilty of one count of indecent exposure.

The jurors also ruled that Rory Harrison was not guilty of perverting the course of justice and withholding information.
