A year ago today Ched Evans was convicted of raping a teenage girl. His supporters are still abusing her by using the hashtag #justiceforched and #shesaidyes and anyone who disagrees with them.
Anyone on twitter who would like to show support to the girl he raped please tweet #ibelieveher

Thank you x

2 emails today

^Hi sashh, Thanks for you email. We may have mad enquiries about Ched's
story but I just wanted to let you know we are not covering it on
Calendar News. Kind regards, Margaret Emsley, Head of News.^


^Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail regarding the Ched Evans story due to appear on Calendar news.

We followed this up after it appeared in a national newspaper and as a result we are not covering the story on ITV Yorkshire's Calendar News.

I hope this puts your mind at rest.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to contact us here at ITV Viewer Services.

If we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,


ITV Viewer Services Officer^

I tweeted. Apparently ITV aren't showing it now, thank god.

The comparison to Nelson Mandela is just awful.

For anyone without twitter, here is a blog post (not mine but says free to use!) with some email addresses on it.

She had originally said it would be on last night but apparently got the day wrong! It should be available online to view.
Sashh I know, they are hideous!

I didn't see the broadcast, I'm out of area. Is there a way to watch it so that I can complain? I've heard that she blamed the victim but obviously can't complain if I have not ween it.

BTW ched's gf is very active on twitter. When it was pointed out to her that ched is guilty she tweeted she hooped that person's child was abused.

I don't tweet but great idea. ITV Yorkshire should be ashamed.

A bump for this thread- Ched's gf is being given airtime by itv Yorkshire tonight at 6pm for some bizarre reason. See the #ibelieveher hashtag and comments for the reaction on twitter and please complain to @itvcalendar if you feel strongly that this should not be happening. Just how many times can a woman be re victimised??

I made the mistake of looking up the #justiceforched thread, they're comparing him to Nelson Mandela.

There are no words.

Tee2072 But thank you - how abrupt of me! Ugh. I've never told anyone - what's the point? I'm happy, so no need. I have not actually thought about it until now - or only once in a while, but more when I was younger and not with DH. He doesn't know. No point as it is not even worth a mention as it hasn't affected me. smile

MomsNetCurtains Sat 20-Apr-13 16:12:08

Oh it's ok, I'm fine. It was in quite a while ago now. I'm not asking for belief. It happened. Life moves on and you learn. Harder I think for the youngsters nowadays with FB and Twitter.
