Man cleared of groping 'corpse'
A man accused of groping an actor playing a corpse at a central London tourist attraction has been cleared.

Gary Landsborough, 33, from Dunstable, Beds, denied grabbing the 25-year-old while she was suspended in the Chamber of Horrors at Madam Tussaud's.

The production line manager was cleared of indecent assault at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court on Wednesday.

When charged Mr Landsborough told police he did not recall the incident at a corporate party in December 2003.

The court was told he said to officers: "No way I can imagine myself doing that. I have no recollection of that part of the evening."

Mr Landsborough was tried earlier this year but a second hearing had to be held after jurors failed to reach a verdict.
