A JURY at Oxford Crown Court has retired to consider its verdict in the trial of a 20-year-old accused of having underage sex with two teenage girls.

Former young boxer Clinton Townsend, of Field Assarts, near Leafield, West Oxfordshire, denies five charges of engaging in sexual activity with a child and two charges of common assault.

He has admitted repeatedly breaching a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and perverting the course of justice after he asked one girl to withdraw her witness statement.
