A Norfolk councillor arrested more than 12 months ago on suspicion of fraud has said he is glad a 'terrible year' has come to an end, after he was told no further action would be taken against him.
Stuart Clancy, deputy leader of Broadland District Council and a Conservative Norfolk county councillor, learned this week that he would not face charges.
Mr Clancy, of The Street in Felthorpe, was arrested by Norfolk police in September last year and had been bailed a number of times.
However, following a police investigation, the Crown Prosecution Service has said he will face no further action.
Mr Clancy, who represents Taverham South at Broadland District Council, where he is also economic development portfolio holder, said he now hoped to put the matter behind him. He said: 'I am pleased that the police investigation has concluded and there is no further action, after what has been a terrible year for myself and my family.'
