EX-Worcestershire cricketer Alex Hepburn will face a retrial over charges of rape alleged to have been committed against a woman, who cannot be identified, in April 2017, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

A CPS spokeswoman said: "After careful consideration of the case against Alex Hepburn, including consultation with the complainant, we have decided to seek a retrial."

Australian-born Hepburn, aged 23, of Portland Street, Worcester, denies two counts of rape and will go on trial at Worcester Crown Court on April 8.
