A man accused of sexually assaulting a woman has been found not guilty following a trial at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

John Tunnicliffe, 52, had denied touching and licking the woman’s breasts at his home in Hawthorn Road, Galashiels, in June.

After evidence was heard from the alleged victim and a social worker the woman had complained to, a not guilty verdict was delivered by the sheriff.
