His barrister, Peter Wright QC, asked him: "Have you sexually assaulted anyone in terms of the allegations set out here, Mr Evans?"
The MP replied: "No, Mr Wright."
Mr Wright then asked: "Have you raped anyone?"
Evans repeated: "No, Mr Wright."
The Swansea-born MP confirmed that he had no previous convictions and had not been arrested before these events.
