Jack Tweed rape trial continues

The woman who claims she was raped by Jack Tweed and his friend Anthony Davis has told a jury she said ''no'' several times during the alleged attack

The woman claiming she was raped by Jack Tweed told a jury she said "no" several times during the alleged attack.

The 20-year-old student - who has accused Jade Goody's widower and his friend Anthony Davis of sexually attacking her - told London's Snaresbrook Crown Court she didn't consent to having sex with the men and told them so more than once during the incident.

Sean Minihan, defending Tweed, asked the woman if she had given any indication she didn't want to sleep with the pair and told to explain why she didn't kick and scream out.

She replied: "I think by saying 'no' more than once should have told them.

"Until you are in that position you don't know what you are going to do.

"They asked me, I said 'no'. If they were respectable men they would have listened to me."

Asked to describe exactly how she showed the men she wasn't consenting to sex, she said: "By telling them 'no' on several occasions, pushing them away, by just laying there and not giving any movement back, sexually that is."

The woman - who is from Hertfordshire - met the two men at London's Embassy nightclub on September 4 last year and went back to Tweed's house in Repton Park, Woodford Green, east London with some of her friends.

She claims Davis held the bedroom door shut while she was raped by Tweed, who she alleges raped her a second time when Davis joined in and forced her to give him oral sex.

The unnamed woman has also denied making up the allegations because she was embarrassed and ashamed of having sex with both men.

Mr. Minihan said: "The truth of it is that you consented to sex with Mr. Tweed and you consented to sex with Mr. Davis."

She replied: "No."

Mr. Minihan then asked: "However, asked by your friend 'Did you f**k both?' you soon regretted what you had allowed and let happen and that's why you came out with this story of rape."

Speaking from behind a screen, the woman answered: "No."

The alleged victim also claims she had not felt safe leaving her house since the attack, although Mr. Minihan showed the courtroom photographs of her partying in nightclubs in recent weeks.

Tweed denies two counts of rape while Davis - from Chigwell, Essex - denies one count of oral rape.

The trial continues.
