LATEST: Sir Paul McCartney's brother MIKE, who was cleared of groping a 16-year-old waitress last week (24FEB06), has furiously branded the experience a nightmare.

The former SCAFFOLD star, 61, claims his family has been rocked by the accusations, which stemmed from an alleged incident in September 2004.

And he refuses to forgive his young accuser - whose identity is protected - insisting: "I'm not JESUS."

He adds, "I had to clear my name for my children's sake. Can you imagine what it would have been like for them to have a father on the Sex Offenders Register?

"Now we just want to get on with our lives. I'm no superstar. I've accepted my role in life. I'm very happy with my wife and children, I have a lovely family around me and nice neighbours. I am a lucky man.

"But this has been terrible."
