An entertainer at a Suffolk holiday park accused of raping a woman after he had been drinking on a night out has been cleared by a jury.

Before Ipswich Crown Court on Friday was 30-year-old Anthony Hughes-Hemmings of Commodore Road, Lowestoft, who had denied raping the woman in 2019.

It was alleged that Hughes-Hemmings got into bed with the woman in a lodge at the Broadland Sands holiday park in Corton and had sex with her despite her telling him to stop.

Lori Tucker, prosecuting, said that prior to the alleged rape Hughes-Hemings had been on a night out in Great Yarmouth and had been “somewhat drunk”.

He and the alleged victim, who’d only had one alcoholic drink, had shared a taxi back to the holiday park.

Hughes-Hemmings had undressed before getting into bed with the woman and allegedly raped her, the court was told.

The court heard that the woman didn't report the alleged rape to the police until August 2020.

When Hughes-Hemmings was interviewed by police he claimed he had consensual sex with the alleged victim.
