AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd murder plot charge 'dropped'

Phil Rudd, the drummer of hard rock group AC/DC, is no longer being charged in New Zealand with attempting to arrange murder, his lawyer has confirmed.

Paul Mabey said the charge was dropped because of insufficient evidence.

Mr Rudd, 60, who was born in Australia, will still face charges of possessing drugs and making threats to kill.

Jon Donnison says Mr Rudd is understood to be considering legal action against the police.
