Jim Davidson 'pleased' as probe ends

By Margaret Davis

Comedian Jim Davidson is "pleased" to have been told that he will face no further action in the UK after he was arrested on suspicion of historic sexual offences.

The 59-year-old was held in January by detectives from Operation Yewtree, the national investigation sparked by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal, and re-arrested in March.

He was told yesterday that he will face no further action in this country, and one remaining claim has been referred to an authority outside the UK.

His solicitor Henri Brandman said: "My client Jim Davidson was, of course, arrested a number of months ago in respect of allegations of an historical sexual nature. He is pleased that there will be no further action relating to the allegations."
