Mr McIlroy stands charged with one count of exposure relating to the events which happened in the early hours of June 28, 2016.

Mr Harvey was, at times, highly adversarial in his line of questioning. He accused the young woman behind the curtain in the witness box of "creating a narrative" using information supplied later by friends and of having false memories of the night.

Mr Harvey focused first on the young woman's two police interviews which in Northern Ireland are called her 'ABEs', or 'Achieving Best Evidence'.

She hadn't thought to draw the attention of the police to additions to her evidence that she had since made in court, he put it to her.

No, she said, telling him that unlike in court, she was not asked questions by the police as she was by defence barristers.

And she hadn't re-read it, he asked.

"I don't have to re-read what is the truth, Mr Harvey," she replied steadily.

Mr Harvey suggested that her memory of events that night was "fractured" - but she replied that there are moments where her mind is "very clear as to what happened".
