Johnson and partner 'argued about him texting girls'

Johnson was described as ‘a bit of a paedophile’ by the friend

Adam Johnson asked police whether kissing is a form of sexual activity in his first interview after his arrest on child sex charges, a court has heard.

Johnson is accused of two counts of sexual activity with a child. The footballer denies the charges.

The court in Bradford also heard Johnson was "shaky" on the night of his arrest at his home in Durham.

The 28-year-old's first police interview, carried out on the day of his arrest, was read out to jurors today as part of Detective Constable Kimberly Walton's evidence.

The footage was sent to the girl's friends, who at that point didn't believe she was meeting Johnson, before the police got hold of it.

A forensic expert has told Bradford Crown Court that he found a picture of the teenage victim in a white bikini as well as a photo of Adam Johnson's "groin area" on the footballer's phone.

'He must have known she wasn't 16, he asked when she was 16 and said "ages away then"'.

Det Con Walton agreed that Johnson's partner said to him: "Who is she?"

She said the former Sunderland player replied: "It's (the girl's name)".

He said: "It was more between me and her. I didn't want to go back home and she'd taken my daughter and didn't give me a chance to explain myself".

Johnson denied he had touched the girl sexually, or that she had touched him and said he "couldn't believe" she was saying these things had happened because she seemed like a "nice person".

And she replied, "I have met up with Adam Johnson".

The jury also heard from the police interview that Johnson was wary of making the girl angry.

Instagram Is Adding View Counts To Videos
According to Instagram , time spent watching videos on its network has risen by more than 40 percent during the past six months. A visible view count is also aimed at making those not yet on the platform think about what they are missing out on.

Accordingly, the signal LIGO received of the black hole merger was played on speakers to audiences of eager scientists. According to the researcher, these objects are behind the changing shape of the universe.

The player has pleaded guilty to one count of grooming the teenager and another of sexual activity with a child.

The teenager wept as she recalled meeting the sacked Sunderland winger, 28, in his 4x4 which had a personalised number plate, before he drove them to a more secluded spot in County Durham.

The court heard that Johnson told his girlfriend "she said she was 16" as he was arrested at their £1.5m Castle Eden mansion, but then told police he knew she was 15-years-old.

Johnson told the detectives: 'I knew it was wrong. We have had a few arguments in the past about me texting girls and things.

The witness said her friend was "pretty distraught" and crying because the news was out. "He gave her a cuddle and I'm not sure if anything else was said", she said.

"It was just like a normal kiss, how you would kiss someone".

"That's how you kiss someone".

"It wasn't a peck, it was a kiss".

"I was upset with myself, I knew she was a fan. BBC Advice. Age of Consent".

Dr Hunton said the search for the "legal age of consent" brought up a Daily Mirror article entitled "What is the age of consent around the world?"

The next webpage viewed was another search result, on the BBC's website.

The teen has previously told the court she felt "compelled" to perform a sex act on the star and also told the jury he unbuttoned her jeans and incited sexual activity.

On Thursday, the jury was shown a 10-second Snapchat video filmed by the schoolgirl in Johnson's vehicle, in an attempt to prove to her friends that she was meeting him.
