A Walthamstow man accused of beating two women has been cleared of all charges.

Patrick Galvin, of Clacton Road in Walthamstow, was temporarliy banned from entering the E17 area earlier this year after being charged with five counts of assault by beating.

The 36-year-old was accused assaulted a woman by beating her four times inside his home between July 20 and November 2 last year.

He was also alleged to have assaulted another woman at the same property on October 5.

Galvin denied all charges on November 26 and a trial date was set for April which in turn led to another court appearance at Stratford Magistrates Court on June 30.

A spokeswoman for the court confirmed this week all of the charges were "dismissed as no evidence was offered."
