A teenager has been cleared of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

The charge related to an incident on a train between Twickenham and Richmond on November 1, 2016.

Qinami failed to appear at court and a warrant for his arrest was issued.

On December 11, Qinami was found not guilty at the same court.
