A MAN has been cleared of raping a woman at a Gower beauty spot.

Ricky Lee Davies, 24, stood trial accused of a single count of rape.

He denied raping his 21-year-old victim in May this year at the Bank Farm campsite in Horton in May.

She had alleged she was too drunk to consent to sex, but woke to find him on top of her and that some of her clothes had been removed.

The alleged victim had said she had been camping with friends and admitted she was "very drunk".

Mr Davies, of no fixed address admitted he had been drunk, but said they had a conversation in the tent. He said he asked if they could have sex and she replied: "If you want to".

The jury took just under an hour to return a not guilty verdict.
