A teacher at Langley School near Loddon, who was accused of sexual offences against an underage student, was acquitted on Thursday.

Robbie Brittain, 29, of Old Oak Close, Wymondham, had denied engaging in sexual activity with a girl under 16 and sexual activity with a girl while in a position of trust.

Norwich Crown Court had heard the alleged offences took place while Mr Brittain was a teacher at Langley School, near Loddon.

But a jury of nine women and three men today found Mr Brittain not guilty of the charges he faced.

The jury took just an hour and 10 minutes to return its verdict after having been sent out by Recorder Mark Dennis QC at just after 11.30am.

As previously reported Mr Brittain insisted during the trial that 'none of this happened at all.'

Mr Brittain did not want to speak to the media as he left court.
