Three Brighton and Hove Albion footballers and a Bournemouth player have been charged with sexually assaulting a woman and voyeurism.

Brighton players Anton Rodgers, 19, Lewis Dunk, 20, and George Barker, 20, and former player Steve Cook, 21, were charged on Monday.

The charges relate to an incident alleged to have taken place in Brighton on 17 July last year.

All four have been bailed to appear before Brighton magistrates on 11 May.

They were among six players arrested in January by Sussex Police.

Fellow Brighton player Ben Sampayo, 19, has been informed that no further action will be taken against him.

Brighton defender Tommy Elphick, 24, was eliminated from the investigation in January.
