Paul Gambaccini: Free At Last!

BBC broadcaster Paul Gambaccini will not face action over alleged historical sex offences, prosecutors say.

The 65-year-old DJ was held at a south London address in October last year as part of the Metropolitan Police's Operation Yewtree investigation.

The Crown Prosecution Service said a 75-year-old man arrested at the same time will also face no further action.

It said the inquiry concerned allegations of sexual offences against teenage boys in the early 1980s.

Mr Paul Gambaccini has always denied the claims.

Baljit Ubhey, the Chief Crown Prosecutor of CPS London, said: "Having carefully reviewed this case, we have decided that there is insufficient evidence to prosecute." ...

Good news - always thought this case stank.

Bad news - the Met held him on bail for a year, well done Plod!

Hope Gambo is back on the wireless soonest.

How The Sun 'broke the story'...
Update: Paul's statement...

‘There may be members of the Press who will ask me to give interviews or make provocative statements. I will politely decline.

‘To discuss horror in this way is to trivialise it. I will never trivialise the 12 months of trauma to which I have been unjustly subjected. I would like to thank my friends, my lawyers and the people of this country for their support during the past year.

‘Wherever I have gone, I have been stopped in the street by members of the public offering encouragement. I am very grateful. I’ll be back at work soon. Thank you.’
