Freddie Star will not be prosecuted

Entertainer Freddie Starr will not be prosecuted following allegations of sex offences, prosecutors have said.

There was "insufficient evidence" to prosecute on most claims, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

There was "a realistic prospect of conviction" on one complaint, but it was not in the public interest to prosecute, a spokeswoman said.

Mr Starr has been on bail since being arrested by Operation Yewtree officers investigating sexual abuse claims.

Matt Prodger reports.
