Jurors in the trial of a retired Irish rugby international facing child sex abuse allegations must set aside sympathy and prejudice, a court has heard.

David Tweed, who played for Ireland and Ulster, is on trial at Antrim Crown Court accused of abusing two young girls who are now adults.

Tweed, a councillor, denies 14 counts of indecent assault, gross indecency and inciting gross indecency. The jury of 10 women and two men is expected to rise to consider verdicts today.
