Prosecutors say Conservative MP Peter Bone and his wife will not face any charges over fraud allegations.
Northamptonshire police investigated the Wellingborough MP and his wife over claims that assets belonging to his mother-in-law were concealed so Northamptonshire County Council would fund her care home fees.

Mr Bone says he and his wife are relieved their 'nightmare' is at an end.

Wellingborough MP Peter Bone has called on the Prime Minister to speed up the decision on a £50 million retail development in Northamptonshire.
Last month the Government delayed the decision on whether or not to approve the Rushden Lakes development.
The proposals, which include shops and leisure facilities, have already been agreed by East Northamptonshire Council but the final decision rests with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Peter Bone MP asked the Prime Minister:
"I've never known of a development that has so much public support. Could the Prime Minister use his best efforts to ensure that the outcome of the public inquiry is announced as soon as possible?"
In response, David Cameron said:
"I know my honourable friend campaigns vigorously for his constituents and for local businesses and for job-creating developments like this one.
"As I'm sure he is aware, I'm not able to get involved in specific planning decisions but I understand that a decision on this application will be made as soon as possible."
Wellingborough MP Peter Bone has published a detailed account of his "nightmare at the hands of the police" after his home was raided over benefit fraud allegations.
He said he was first made aware of the visit by officers in March last year by a series of "frantic messages" from his wife.
He said: "What was causing the upset was that three police officers had raided our home without any warning."
A former Mayor of Wellingborough has been convicted of benefit fraud.

He was sentenced to eight weeks in prison suspended for a year. Mr Patel has resigned from the conservative party and there are calls for him to leave the council.

MPs have hit out at the Ministry of Justice's decision to close down Wellingborough Prison.
Kettering MP Philip Hollobone backed his fellow Tory saying:
"Can I gently suggest to you that I think the governmental papers must have got muddled on this particular prison, because it's extremely cost-effective, one of the lowest costs per prisoner across the whole of the prison estate.
"And you say there's lots of money needed to improve the site, but having gone around it myself, I simply don't think that that is the case.
"Can I just urge you to take Mr Bone's advice and look again at this wrong decision?"
Mr Wright said the costs of bringing the prison up to standard were prohibitive, saying it would cost around £50m.
