Allegations thrown out
THE case against three local men accused of serious sexual offences has been thrown out of court.
Daniel Howley, of Top Of The Close Road, Walsden, Gareth Connor, of Dean Head, Todmorden Road, Littleborough, and Abdul Mahmood, of Sanworth Street, Todmorden, had the case against them quashed when they appeared before Bradford Crown Court last Friday.
They had faced allegations which included rape and assisting rape but the prosecution offered no evidence in the case. All three men were cleared of the alleged offences and acquitted.
