Taxi Driver Who Took Complainant Home After Alleged Rape Testifies At Jackson/Olding Trial.

: 02/14/2018 - 12:00

The jury in Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding's rape trial has heard from the taxi driver who took the complainant home after the alleged attack.

The Ireland and Ulster rugby teammates deny raping the then 19-year-old student at Jackson's home in Belfast in June 2016.

Rory Harrison from Manse Road in Belfast shared the taxi with her. He's accused of trying to cover up what is alleged to have happened.

The driver told the court the woman seemed very upset and was "crying and sobbing throughout" the journey back to her home.

He said Mr. Harrison either made or took a phone call on the way there and was "talking in code" to whomsoever was on the other end.

He said he remembered him saying: "She is with me now. She's not good. I'll call you in the morning".
