Jim Davidson will not face sex charges, say prosecutors

Comedian Jim Davidson will face no further action over alleged sexual offences in the UK, the CPS has said.

The 59-year-old was first arrested in January by detectives from Operation Yewtree, which was set up after the Jimmy Savile scandal - although his arrest was not linked to the late DJ.

He was re-arrested in March after further allegations emerged.

His solicitor, Henri Brandman, said that the comedian was "pleased" with the news.

Nicholas Owen reports.
