A JEHOVAH’S Witness has been found not guilty of five indecent assaults.

David Burridge, also known as Martin, was alleged to have committed four offences against a young girl between 1975 and 1983 and one against a male child between 1999 and 2001.

He had strongly denied the charges against him, and at the conclusion of a trial at Bournemouth Crown Court this week was found unanimously not guilty on all counts.

When questioned about the allegations made by the female, Mr Burridge, 62, of Station Road in Alderholt, said: “That is a lie."
