Devon and Somerset RAF officer cleared of sexual assault
A wing commander responsible for 1,000 RAF cadets has been cleared of sexual assault.
Brian Wills-Pope, the officer commanding the Devon and Somerset Wing Air Training Corps, had been accused of kissing a teenage boy in 2015.
Judge David Ticehurst ruled there was no case to answer and the case was dismissed at Taunton Crown Court.
Mr Wills-Pope, 64, from Torquay, had pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual assault.
