An Oxfordshire locum doctor has been cleared of sexually assaulting eight of his patients.

Yenugula Srinivas, 42, was found not guilty of all 11 charges - four of sexual assault and seven of assault by penetration.

Dr Srinivas, who is from Sandford-on-Thames, had denied carrying out intimate tests that were not medically justified.

He was acquitted by a jury at Oxford Crown Court.

After the hearing, a spokesman for NHS Oxfordshire said Dr Srinivas would continue to be suspended while the primary care trust awaits the outcome of a General Medical Committee investigation.
