Former Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has been found not guilty of one charge of sexual activity with a child, with the jury at Bradford Crown Court undecided on a remaining charge that they will continue to deliberate.

Johnson pleaded guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child and one of grooming at Bradford Crown Court on the opening day of his trial on February 10, denying two further charges of sexual activity with a girl under the age of 16.

Judge Jonathan Rose asked the jury to reach a unanimous verdict on the remaining charges and Johnson has been found not guilty of one of the two.

The jury have been sent back out to continue deliberating the remaining charge and have been given majority direction – meaning Judge Rose will now accept a majority verdict.
