JOHN Brown, the brother of former Eurovision Song Contest winner Dana has been cleared of five counts of historical sex abuse.
The 60-year-old, with an address in Bracknell, Berkshire in England, denied all five charges throughout the three-week trial at Harrow Crown Court.
He was found not guilty of indecent assault against two girls, aged 13 and 16, at several locations in Northern Ireland and England during the 1970s.
Mr Brown had denied all of the accusations and had denied that his sister, a former Irish presidential candidate, helped him to cover up the allegations.
Dana closed her eyes and appeared to cry as the jury returned the verdicts.
And the pair hugged each other and were congratulated by other family members before leaving the courtroom.
The jury of six men and six women found him not guilty of two charges relating to the first complainant this morning.
In the afternoon acquitted him of the three remaining counts relating to the second after a total of 11 hours and 54 minutes deliberation.
