A 24-year-old man has been acquitted of rape.

Eamon Rory Owen McTaggart, whose address was given on court papers as c/o Maghaberry, had denied raping a woman between July 26 and July 29, 2013.

A prosecution barrister told Derry Crown Court the PPS would be offering no further evidence in the case.

A jury was sworn and directed to find McTaggart not guilty of the charge.
