Mr Loryman stood trial at Bradford Crown Court

A former teacher has been found not guilty of two counts of abusing a young boy more than a decade ago.

Stephen Loryman, 59, of Burnsall Mews, Silsden, West Yorkshire, denied two allegations of sexual assault on a boy under the age of 13.

The charges dated back more than a decade to between 2008 and 2010.

Mr Loryman, who had previously worked as a teacher in Keighley, was found not guilty on Monday after a trial at Bradford Crown Court.

He was originally charged with four counts of sexual abuse but this was changed to two on the first day of the trial, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed.
