Rape Trial Collapses After 40,000 Texts Are Revealed

A student with a rape charge hanging over him for “two years of hell” has been acquited after it emerged police had failed to provide 40,000 texts, which proved his innocence.

The trial collapsed on the first day, when the new information emerged, with the prosecuting barrister apologizing for what he said was a “very serious miscarriage of justice.”
