Cops say sorry to rape case student
A STUDENT accused of rape has received an apology from police and prosecutors after a review into his collapsed trial found that messages undermining the case against him had been missed.
Liam Allan (above), 22, spent almost two years on bail ahead of a trial which was halted at Croydon Crown Court in December.
More than 57,000 messages were recovered from the complainant’s phone, but only some were served in evidence.
Commander Richard Smith, of the Metropolitan Police, said: “Mr Allan received a personal apology for the errors that were made.”
