Two men jailed for the rape of a friend in a small town in western Victoria have had their convictions overturned and a new trial ordered.
Shaun Bloomfield and Luke Merryfull, both in their 20s, were jailed last year over the alleged rape of a woman at Balmoral in April 2016.
The men have always denied attacking the woman, arguing sex with her in a caravan at a party was consensual.
Victoria's Court of Appeal overturned their convictions on Thursday, finding fresh evidence warranted a new trial.
Bloomfield and Merryfull are expected to seek bail later on Thursday.
Their case will return to the County Court in October.
