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.

The CPS says there's insufficient evidence to pursue a criminal charge and no element of dishonesty could be proved.

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