A Royal Air Force pilot has been cleared of attempting to kill his squadron leader girlfriend.

Flight Lieutenant Timothy Barry was also accused of grievous bodily harm with intent following a night out with Squadron Leader Sarah Seddon to celebrate her return from a three-month tour of Afghanistan.

A jury took two hours to clear him of both those charges.

Flt Lt Barry, who is based at RAF Benson, had earlier pled guilty to an assault charge, for which he will be sentenced next month.

Following Tuesday's verdict, an RAF spokesperson said: "The RAF will consider the court’s findings, however, it would be inappropriate for the RAF to comment while legal proceedings are on-going."
