Two men from Essex have been found not guilty of imprisoning a woman in their Hertfordshire hotel room.

Billy Millar, 23, of Mill Road, West Mersea and 21-year-old Liam Skinner, from High Street North, Colchester, had denied the charge.

The jury at St Albans Crown Court also cleared them of committing an offence with the intention of committing a sexual offence.

The pair were part of a golf party staying at the hotel last summer.

The woman, who worked at the hotel, claimed she was dragged into their room while walking along a corridor on 1 July.
