A Hemel man accused of attempted murder has been acquitted by a jury.

John Taylor, 49, of Redbourn Road, was found not guilty of attempted murder by a jury at Luton Crown Court yesterday (Thursday).

Mr Taylor had faced the charge after a woman was found with serious head injuries in Parr Crescent on Tuesday, September 29, last year.

She has since made a full recovery from her injuries, police said.

Mr Taylor did, however, plead guilty to breach of a non-molestation order and was sentenced to 20 months in prison.

The judge also granted an indefinite restraining order.
