A leading campaign group has spoken in support of both the victims of Max Clifford and the way in which the Crown Prosecution Service dealt with the case.
Holly Dustin, director of the End Violence Against Women Coalition, said:
The long deliberation in this case shows that the jury took its role very seriously and considered all the evidence on each charge very carefully. We pay tribute, in particular, to the victims in this case who have faced a long and difficult process.
This verdict also shows that the independence of the CPS is critically important, especially in sexual offence cases about which there are widely-held prejudicial attitudes and myths.
