A LONG-SERVING hospital worker has been found not guilty of an alleged sexual assault while carrying out a routine procedure.
Former clinical support worker Paul Edwards, 31, of Naylor Road, Ellesmere Port, had worked at the Countess of Chester Hospital for 14 years before being suspended after the allegation was made.
Mr Edwards, who is divorced with two children, was arrested in May last year.
A 27-year-old man made the complaint after receiving treatment at the Countess of Chester hospital when a serious motorcycle crash left him with a broken leg and needing 16 metal plates in his face.
The jury found Mr Edwards not guilty after an hour of deliberations at Chester Crown Court TODAY (Thursday, March 27).
