The jury has been discharged in the trial of a man accused of raping a woman in a Surrey park, after failing to reach a verdict.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was attacked at Whyteleafe Recreation Ground, in Hillbury Road, Whyteleafe, on 18 May.

A hearing on 16 December will determine whether Mr Ford will face a retrial.
