Police office and former Mr Gay UK has been cleared of raping another man after the jury failed to reach a verdict.

Pc Mark Carter, 28, was facing Leeds Crown Court on the count of two charges of rape and three of sexual assault.

All charges against Carter, from Bradford, allegedly took place on a Christmas work night out in Leeds on 18 December last year.

The accused reportedly met a man in the local Loft Bar where then went back to the Etap hotel where he allegedly dragged the man by his hair and raped him.

Carter responded in his defense to the allegations: "We had gone back for mutual pleasure, a sexual encounter."

Describing how it had affected his life, he said: "It turned my life upside down. I embarked on an absolute living nightmare."

He went on to inform the court in his defense that the gay scene is full of “bitchy drama queens who like to make things up.”

Following the jury’s undecided vote a further decision will be made next week to decide whether or not to proceed with a retrial.
