An Eastbourne man accused of pushing a baby wipe so far in to a 10-month-old’s mouth that it blocked his airway has been found not guilty by a jury at Hove Crown Court.

Mark Anthony Gordon, 41, formerly of Cavendish Place and now living in Maidstone, had denied a charge of ABH and GBH. The baby boy needed surgery to remove the baby wipe.
