Ched Evans appealing

Former Sheffield United footballer Ched Evans has lodged an appeal against his conviction for rape.

The 23 year old Welsh international was jailed for 5 years for a sex attack on a 19 year old woman in May last year.

A spokesman for the court of appeal in London today confirmed that an appeal has been lodged against both the conviction and sentence. A date has yet to be set for the hearing.
