A man accused of raping a woman in a hotel room has been acquitted.

Jurors returned a not proven verdict against James Robb, 22, following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

He was said to have attacked the “comatose” 24 year-old at the Normandy Hotel in Renfrew on 14th May 2019.

Robb, of Aberdeen, had denied the allegation.

He instead told jurors that he had gone to her aid due to her intoxicated condition.

Prosecutor Iain Smith put to him during the trial: “Although she had passed out and another woman left the room, she woke up not only to try and undress herself but to agree that you should help her?”

Robb replied: “Yes.”

He also insisted his evidence of what happened was not “made up”.
