Winehouse boyfriend cleared of rape

The boyfriend of the late Amy Winehouse has been cleared of raping a woman while she slept in his bed.

35 year old Reg Traviss walked free from Southwark Crown Court after a jury acquitted him of twice raping the 27-year-old at his flat in Devonshire Street, central London, in the early hours of New Year's Eve last year.

The film director - who was going out with the Back To Black star when she died in July last year - said the pair had consensual sex after a night out drinking together.
