Jury fails to agree Lancing nurse sex assaults verdict

A jury in the case of a nurse charged with sexually assaulting patients at a private hospital has been discharged after failing to agree a verdict.

Ioan Galatanu, 53, is accused of sexual assault by touching two female patients at Goring Hall Hospital, in Worthing, West Sussex, on separate dates in 2013.

A hearing will be held at Lewes Crown Court on 16 March to decide whether Mr Galatanu, of South Street, Lancing, should face a retrial.

The hospital is run by BMI Healthcare.
