A Barmby Moor man accused of rape has been cleared by a jury at Hull Crown Court.

Craig Sellers, 28, of York Road, denied two charges of rape on a woman and stood a three-day trial at Hull Crown Court.

Mr Sellers protested his innocence saying CCTV evidence countered the woman’s claims. 
He said it was one word against another.

A jury took less than an hour to find him not guilty. A previous trial was adjourned for disclosure of records about the complainant. Mr Sellers walked free.
