A girl who is accusing a man of rape will be cross examined today.

The sixteen year old says Gary John Beattie raped her in Ramsey in March this year.

The thirty-four year old admits they had sexual intercourse, but denies raping the girl.

Yesterday the court was shown footage from her police interview the day after the alleged rape.

In it she told officers that she didn't consent to sex.

The trial was scheduled for five days, but is expected to continue into next week.
