A 23-year-old man has been found not guilty of arson at a Hull nightclub.

A judge at Hull Crown Court decided that Warren Scott had no case to answer and directed a jury to find him not guilty.

More than 300 people were evacuated from Valbon on George Street after the fire in February.

Another man, Scott Jackson, 23, of Delius Close, Hessle, East Yorkshire, has admitted arson and will be sentenced at a later date.
