A police sergeant and his wife have been acquitted of sexually assaulting a woman after the prosecution offered no evidence against them.
 
West Midlands officer Nicholas Clarke, 49, who lives in Worcestershire, was formally acquitted of rape.
 
The prosecution accepted inquiries into a phone text message meant there was no reasonable prospect of conviction.
 
Joanne Clarke was acquitted of sexual assault but has admitted drugs offences and was given a conditional discharge.
 
Clarke and her husband, both aged 49 and living in Rednal, had been due to stand trial at Hereford Crown Court charged with assaulting the woman in Worcestershire in June 2009.
