Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell (centre) arrives at Manchester Crown Court on the third day of his trial for a series of child sex offences

A doctor who examined the girl allegedly raped by Coronation Street star Michael Le Vell agreed her findings did not prove child sex abuse had taken place.

Dr Louise O'Connor agreed with a second expert that the medical findings of the examination of the girl were "neutral and neither support or refute the allegations".

Le Vell is accused at Manchester Crown Court of a series of sex assaults against the youngster, including raping her as she clutched a teddy bear.

Le Vell, 48, who plays car mechanic Kevin Webster in the ITV soap, is facing 12 charges in all - five counts of rape, three of indecent assault, two counts of sexual activity with a child, and two of causing a child to engage in sexual activity.

Le Vell, who is on trial under his real name of Michael Turner, denies the offences saying they are "an absolute pack of lies".
