Two members of the 1960s pop group The Tremeloes have been acquitted of indecently assaulting a 15-year-old girl after a gig almost 50 years ago.
Leonard “Chip” Hawkes, 70, and Richard Westwood, 73, were due to stand trial next year over allegations they assaulted the teenager in a hotel room in Chester in April 1968.
However, a judge at Reading Crown Court ordered both men be found not guilty.
It comes after prosecutor Owen Edwards said there was no evidence to offer.
