RBPF Gets International Black Eye
"A man accused of raping two British women in Barbados has thanked the two victims for fighting to clear his name.
Researcher Rachel Turner from Hertfordshire and Diane Davies, from Anglesey, north Wales, were attacked within days of each other in 2010.
Barbadian Derick Crawford, 47, spent 18 months in jail, but a court dismissed the case against him on Thursday.
The two women are convinced Mr Crawford was not the man who attacked them and have fought to clear his name.
Dr Turner and Mrs Davies waived their right to anonymity to fight for justice for Mr Crawford.
They have called on the police to investigate the case and find the real attacker."
