A former police officer has been cleared of raping a woman he had arrested the day before.

Adesoji Afolabi, from Luton, arrested the 22-year-old woman on suspicion of criminal damage last July.

The 30-year-old, who worked for Hertfordshire Police at the time, was accused of later raping her at her father's home in Harlow.

A jury at Chelmsford Crown Court took 40 minutes to find Mr Afolabi, who joined the police in 2011, not guilty.

It is understood Mr Afolabi no longer works for Hertfordshire Police.
