A GODMANCHESTER man accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his home has been cleared of all charges.
Paul Hagan-Chambers, 50, was found not guilty on four charges of rape and one of sexual assault by a jury at Peterborough Crown Court last Wednesday.
However, Hagan-Chambers will still face a prison sentence after admitting causing the woman actual bodily harm at his home in Tudor Road last year.
He admitted punching the woman in the face, but said it during a row in which the woman had jabbed at him with a knife.

He had told the court the pair had consensual sex during the period and had made sure he had consent after she had made a previous allegation against him.
Sentencing was adjourned for reports for Hagan-Chambers, who was found guilty of another assault in the 10-day period at an earlier trial.
He has already served more than a year in prison on remand while awaiting trial.
