Retrial ordered of boy accused of raping girl, four

A jury has been discharged after failing to reach a verdict in the trial of a boy accused of raping a four-year-old girl in a Buckinghamshire park.

Jurors told a judge at Huntingdon Crown Court they were unable to reach a verdict and the case was adjourned for a retrial.

The boy denies attacking the girl in Emberton Park, Olney, near Milton Keynes, on 13 August 2009.

Neither the girl nor the teenager can be identified for legal reasons.
