Adam Johnson on trial: How the first day unfolded in court

Durham Constabulary is urging social media users to take care with what they post - and reminding people that anyone who breaks the law will be dealt with robustly.

Johnson, 28, yesterday admitted one count of meeting a girl under 16 following sexual grooming, and one count of sexual activity with a child.

He has denied two further offences of sexual activity with a child, and will stand trial on these charges. A jury has been sworn in, and will return to court at 10.30am tomorrow.
