A woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by Sunderland footballer Titus Bramble has told a court she felt "really scared".

Bramble, 30, is accused of groping one woman in a nightclub before sexually assaulting another as they shared a taxi after a night out in Yarm, Teesside.

Bramble denies four charges of sexual assault, alleged to have taken place on 28 September, 2011.

The woman told Teesside crown court that she and Bramble left Yarm's Cross Keys nightclub together and agreed to share a taxi.

During the journey, the woman claimed that Bramble tried to kiss her. He had earlier tried in an alleyway outside the nightclub.

"He put his hand between my legs and up my dress and I told him to stop immediately," she told the court.

She claimed the footballer twice "forced" her hand on to his groin, at which point she got "really scared".

The taxi driver was so concerned that he drove straight to a police station to report Bramble, the court heard.

The trial has already heard evidence given by the other woman, who claimed she felt someone grope her while she was in the nightclub. She then turned around to see Bramble "smirking" which she said made her "very uncomfortable".

The trial continues.
