A man has been found guilty of raping a 19-year-old shortly after she got off a bus.

Michael Doos, 52, previously of Netherfield Green, was convicted following a trial at Lewes Crown Court.

She said he pushed her against a wall and raped her before driving off.

Doos is due to be sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on 11 March.
