Leeds United's Jody Morris and another man face rape charges
Leeds United player Jody Morris and a 26-year-old man from London are due in court to face rape charges.

Mr Morris, 24, and Kristofer Dickie were rearrested after returning to a police station on Tuesday as a condition of their bail.

A 20-year-old woman claims she was assaulted in a lay-by on the A58, a quarter-of-a-mile from Collingham near Wetherby in West Yorkshire.

The two men are due to appear at Leeds Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Jermaine Pennant, 20, on loan at Leeds from Arsenal, was also questioned by police but has been released on bail without charge.

Mr Morris, a former Chelsea player, was first arrested in connection with the alleged assault on 7 October.

Mr Morris was suspended by the club following his arrest.
