Rochdale MP Simon Danzcuk rape case dropped
An MP who was facing a rape allegation dating back to 2006 will not face any further action, prosecutors have said.
Rochdale Labour MP Simon Danzcuk was interviewed by Lancashire Police over the allegation, on 4 January.
But, the Crown Prosecution Service has said no further action should be taken because of "insufficient evidence".
Mr Danczuk said he was "relieved" the case against him had been dropped and described the investigation as an "immensely stressful period".
