Jim Davidson faces no further action by police
Comedian Jim Davidson today spoke of his relief that he will face no further action over allegations he sexually assaulted ten women.
The 59-year-old was arrested in January and again in March as part of Operation Yewtree, the inquiry launched in the aftermath of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
But the Crown Prosecution Service say the women's allegations were not strong enough for there to be a realistic prospect of securing a conviction.
Speaking from his yacht in Torquay, Devon, he said: "I've been through tough times before and got through, and I will come through this. It will all be fine.

"I'm relieved that it has now all blown over. Obviously, I'm very happy there will be no more police action."
Davidson still has one allegation hanging over him - an alleged indecent assault on a woman in the Falkland Islands in the 1980s.
It is up to the Falkland's attorney general Mark Lewis to consult lawyers before deciding whether he should be prosecuted.
He was due to play the Princess Theatre in Torquay, Devon, last night as part of his 'You Must Be Joking' tour.
