Mr Justice King told the jury the "good character of Mr Evans is something you should take into account".

At Preston Crown Court he said they should consider consistencies and inconsistencies in the evidence.

Mr Evans, 56, denies rape, two indecent assaults, five sexual assaults and an attempted sexual assault against seven young men from 2003 to 2013.
