Clifford won't face re-trial over not-reached verdict

Max Clifford will not face a re-trial in the one count on which the jury in his indecent assaults trial was unable to reach a verdict.

As proceedings began in his sentencing, prosecutor Rosina Cottage QC confirmed that no re-trial will be sought.

While being found guilty of eight counts of indecent assault on Monday, Clifford was also cleared of another two counts of the same offence at Southwark Crown Court.
