Speedway Star Cleared Of Sex Assault

Dorset speedway star Darcy Ward's been cleared of sexually assaulting a drunk girl in a hotel room.

The 20-year-old Poole Pirates rider had been accused of attacking the teenager at a Premier Inn in Holes Bay Road last August following a speedway meeting.

A 17-year-old boy who was charged with a more serious offence was cleared as well.

Ward has been the under-21 world champion twice in his career.
