Lawyers for Prince Andrew have written to a US judge to demand a jury trial in a civil lawsuit brought by a woman who has accused him of sexual assault.

Virginia Giuffre, 38, alleges that he sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager at the homes of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

The Duke of York has denied all the allegations against him.

In the court documents, his legal team submitted several reasons why they believe the case should be dismissed.

The 11-page document states that Prince Andrew “admits that he met Epstein in or around 1999,” but denies that he participated in any abuse.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell and Nada Tawfik in New York.
