A jury has been sent out to consider its verdicts in the child sex trial of footballer Adam Johnson.

The former Sunderland and Manchester City winger is fighting charges of sexual activity with a 15 year-old.

He has already admitted one other count, and a grooming charge.

Judge Jonathan Rose has informed jurors to go home and return tomorrow to continue deliberations.

Johnson, who won 12 England caps during his career, was sacked by Sunderland last month after admitting to two counts.
