Johnny Depp testifies that he never hit ex-wife Amber Heard

Actor Johnny Depp has testified in his $50m (£38m) defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard that he never struck her.

The lawsuit is over an opinion piece Ms. Heard wrote for the Washington Post in which she called herself a victim of domestic violence.  He denies any abuse.

Ms. Heard has sued back with a $100m counterclaim against Mr. Depp.

The closely watched civil trial, which is taking place in Virginia, is now in its second week.
