AN AIRPORT worker who pinched a WPC's bottom walked free from court after magistrates ruled it was not indecent assault.

Heathrow cargo handler Ian Griffin admitted pinching the woman after he was arrested following a domestic argument but said he did it out of a grudge against the police - and not for sexual kicks.

Griffin, 27, said: "This is victory for common sense. To pinch a policewoman's bottom while under arrest and in the heat of the moment hardly means you are a sexual offender."

But he admitted having spat in a police sergeant's face just after and was fined pounds 300 and ordered to pay pounds 100 compensation.
