Tory MP Mark Pritchard will face no further action over a rape allegation, Metropolitan Police have confirmed.
The Wrekin MP was initially arrested after voluntarily attending a London police station on December 2.
He was released on bail to return today, where he was informed he would face no further action.
A police spokesman said: “A 48-year-old man voluntarily attended a north London police station on Tuesday, December 2 where he was arrested, following an allegation of rape in central London.
“He returned on bail on January 6 where he was informed he will face no further action as there was insufficient evidence.”
Mr Pritchard is expected to make a statement later today.
