Nine people have each been told to pay £624 to a woman raped by footballer Ched Evans after they admitted naming her on Twitter and Facebook.

The former Sheffield United and Wales striker was jailed for five years in April for raping the 19-year-old.

Seven men and three women, aged between 18 and 27 and from north Wales and Sheffield have been accused of revealing the victim's identity.

One of the women denied the charge and was granted bail until 21 January.
