A Norwich doctor accused of a series of sexual assaults has been found not guilty.

Dr Ashok Kumar Singh, 50, of Turnberry, Norwich, had been on trial at Norwich Crown Court having been accused of 10 counts of sex assault against four different women.

It was claimed Dr Singh had used his stethoscope to examine the breasts of two female patients at the Hellesdon Medical Practice, in Reepham Road, and allegedly brushed against the breast of a third patient, which the woman felt was deliberate.

He was also alleged to have indecently assaulted another female patient, while working at a hospital in Nottinghamshire in 2000, Norwich Crown Court heard.
