Former Avon and Somerset boss cleared of sex offences

Gary Davies

A former police boss has been cleared of five counts of sexual assault.

Ex chief superintendant Gary Davies was alleged to have assaulted three women in busy train carriages travelling between Taunton and Bristol between December 2015 and May 2016.

The 54-year-old left the Avon and Somerset force in 2012.

Mr Davies, of Shoreditch Road, Taunton, denied all charges and was cleared by a jury at Bristol Crown Court on Friday.

He argued the touching happened due to overcrowding on the trains.
