Woman, 82, cleared of historical sex abuse against girl

An 82-year-old woman from Cardiff who was accused of sexually abusing a young girl has been cleared of all charges.

Elizabeth Mulcahy, from Llandaff, had faced six counts of indecent assault against a female under the age of 13.

It was claimed the offences took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s but she described the allegations as "total lies".

After a week-long trial at Cardiff Crown Court, a jury found her not guilty on all counts.
