Breaking news: Brighton & Hove Albion players charged with sexual assault and voyeurism

By Liam Dawes

Three Brighton & Hove Albion players and a Bournemouth player have been charged with sexual assault and voyeurism.

Albion players Anton Rodgers, 19, George Barker, 20, and Lewis Dunk, 20, have been charged this afternoon along with Bournemouth defender Steve Cook, 21.

Rodgers is the son of Swansea City manager Brendan.

Ben Sampayo, who was arrested at the same time as the other four players, has been informed that no further action will be taken against him.

The four men will now appear at Brighton Magistrates’ Court next Friday after being granted bail.

Both clubs have confirmed the charges, but have declined to comment further at this stage.

The men were first arrested back in January in relation to the alleged incident, which is alleged to have taken place in Brighton on July 17 last year.

Albion defender Tommy Elphick was also arrested in January, but was eliminated from the investigation later that month.
