On a visit to Solihull to make an announcement on jobs as part of the Conservatives' election campaign, the Prime Minister David Cameron said he was looking forward to Aston Villa's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley tomorrow.

Villa beat local rivals West Bromwich Albion to reach Wembley, and recorded an important win at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend to give their Premier League survival hopes a boost.

A former MP for Leicester West will not face trial in connection with historic child sex abuse allegations, it has been reported.

Lord Janner of Braunstone's home and House of Lords office have previously been searched. He was not arrested.

The Times newspaper claims the Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders is to announce that it would not be in the public interest to proceed with a case against Lord Greville Janner.

The Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed it will make an announcement today.

The 86-year-old father of three served as an MP for 27 years and is a former president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews. He has fought for compensation for Holocaust victims.

He has always denied the allegations.
