A 25-year-old man has gone on trial accused of raping a 15-year-old girl in his car.

Aaron Deakin-Hars, of Squires Road, Brize Norton, denies one count of rape allegedly committed on March 16 last year.

He is accused of carrying out the crime while his car was parked in a country road near Carterton after meeting a girl he had been sending messages to on Facebook.

Fern Russell, prosecuting, told Oxford Crown Court that Deakin-Hars does not deny having sex with the girl, whose age he said he did not know, but told police it was consensual.

The trial continues.
