Court documents submitted in New York show Prince Andrew has demanded a jury trial in the civil case being brought by Virginia Giuffre.

The American woman alleges she was sexually assaulted by the Duke of York 21 years ago when she was a teenager.

The documents contain more than 40 denials of all the allegations against him, including that he was a close friend of the convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
