AN ARMY chaplain was yesterday cleared of groping, kissing and fondling a soldier's wife after telling a court martial that the allegations were nothing more than lies made up by a "woman scorned".

In the first court martial to involve an Army chaplain, self-confessed flirt Captain Richard Landall was cleared of four counts of indecently assaulting the woman, known only as Mrs X. After the hearing at Aldershot, Hampshire, Capt Landall said: "I thank God that justice has been done. I have prayed throughout this case that the truth would come out."
