Two women arrested on suspicion of wilful ill-treatment and neglect at a nursery in Wilmslow will not face charges, police have confirmed.

Wilmslow Day Nursery in Hawthorn Lane, Wilmslow, was closed in November last year over child protection concerns.

Cheshire Police said The Crown Prosecution Service had decided that no further action should be taken against the women, aged 34 and 36.

Ofsted said the Ofsted registration for the nursery had been cancelled.

A police spokeswoman said: "Following an investigation by Cheshire Police into the welfare and management of children at Wilmslow Day Nursery, a file was prepared and presented to the Crown Prosecution Service.

"The CPS reviewed the file and concluded that no further action should be taken against the two women... who were arrested on suspicion of wilful ill treatment and neglect."
