The self-styled adviser to former defence secretary Liam Fox will not face criminal charges, prosecutors announced yesterday.

Adam Werritty was under investigation after describing himself as Mr Fox's adviser on business cards and allegedly accepting donations. Andrew Penhale from the Crown Prosecution Service said: "We have advised City of London Police there is insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction."

Dr Fox resigned last year after being found guilty of breaching the ministerial code over his relationship with Mr Werritty, whom he met 40 times in the Ministry of Defence and on trips abroad.
