Shah: 'Rape case brought due to name'

Former UK newspaper boss Eddy Shah has been found not guilty of raping a schoolgirl.

Mr Shah, 69, who founded the Today newspaper, denied six counts of rape. He had told the Old Bailey he had "never touched" the teenage girl.

Speaking outside court, Mr Shah said that he thought the case had been brought because he was a "name".
