Radio presenter Chris Evans will face no further investigation into an allegation he sexually assaulted a woman in the 1990s.

The allegation, made to police on May 23 this year, related to an incident said to have occurred in Tower Hamlets, east London.

A spokesman for the former Top Gear presenter said: "The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that the complaint has been investigated, but it fails to meet the evidential test to warrant any further action. The case is dropped."

The Metropolitan Police said officers from the sexual offences, exploitation and child abuse command investigated but decided that there was insufficient evidence to proceed.
