Police meet broadcaster over Evans rape trial coverage

North Wales police have met with broadcaster Sky News over their coverage of the rape trial of Wales international footballer Ched Evans.

The channel broadcast the identity of Evans' victim via social networking websites following his conviction for rape last month.

Rape victims are guaranteed anonymity from media coverage under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1992.

Evans was jailed for five years at Caernarfon Crown court.
