A West Midlands Police officer has been found not guilty of assault after two women were arrested by a bus station.

PC Kevin McClenaghan, 50, faced three charges of assault after the arrests following a disturbance near Halesowen bus station on 22 December 2017.

He was also found not guilty of attempting to pervert the course of justice at an earlier hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.

The police watchdog is finalising its own report into the incident.

West Midlands Police said it would be inappropriate to comment until that investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct was complete.
