A woman who was allegedly raped by the Wales international footballer Ched Evans and another man feared that her drink had been spiked.

A court has heard a police interview in which the woman says that she can't remember the alleged attack.

Wales and Sheffield United striker Mr Evans and the other player, Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald, both deny raping her.

Cross-examined by defence barrister Lloyd Morgan, acting for McDonald, the woman agreed she had drunk two-thirds of a bottle of wine and the other alcohol that night.

Occasionally dabbing her eyes with a tissue during her evidence, she said she couldn't remember getting in a taxi with McDonald and asking where he was going.

Mr Morgan said the footballer told her he was going to the hotel and she said she was going with him.

Mr Morgan said she and McDonald chatted in the room and she touched him."You each took your clothes off and he began having sex with you. Do you remember?" She replied:"No."

Mr Morgan said:"You were happy for this sex to go on weren't you?" - "I don't remember."

She agreed to Evans getting involved when he came in the room, the barrister suggested. To which she said she didn't remember.

Mr Morgan suggested she had woken up, knew what had happened and felt embarrassed by it, something the woman denied.

David Fish QC, for Evans, said :"Whatever you had to drink that night and whatever the effect of any other substance, you went willingly to the Premier Inn with Mr McDonald?"

Reply: "I don't remember."

The QC:" I suggest you had sexual intercourse with both men in that room willingly."

Reply: "I don't remember."

Mr Fish :"You gave no indication to either man you didn't want to have sex."

Reply: "I don't remember."

The trial continues.
