Prosecutor Michael Greenhalgh told the court the woman entered the ‘advanced stages of labour’ while the couple were in bed at around 11.30pm. The defendant had fallen asleep but his girlfriend had not.

The man was alleged to have attacked his partner while she was on her hands and knees trying to relieve the pain of her contractions after going into labour at home in Hull, East Yorkshire.

A jury cleared him of the rape charge on Friday after half an hour following a five-day trial at Hull Crown Court.
