Man guilty of 'comatose' Cumbria woman's rape

A man has been found guilty of raping a woman while she lay unconscious in her flat in Cumbria after a drinking binge.

Jonathan Wood, 25, of Home Farm Close, Lancaster, raped the woman after going into her Kirkby Lonsdale flat while she was "comatose" after a night out.

He admitted having sex with her but said it was with her consent, but the Carlisle Crown Court jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict.

Wood was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on Wednesday.
