'Miss M' awarded damages after suing the man who raped her

A woman known as 'Miss M’ has won £80,000 in damages in a private civil action from a man who had been cleared of raping her after a night out in Scotland.

In a criminal trial in 2015 a High Court jury found the charges against her attacker, Stephen Coxen not proven.

But a sheriff in the civil action ruled Mr Coxen raped Miss M, and demanded he pay damages.
