The case against David Cecil, the British theatre producer charged in Uganda after staging a play which featured a gay character, has been thrown out.

Cecil's play, The River and the Mountain, was performed without authorisation in a country where tougher anti-gay laws are being discussed.

Mr Cecil tells me he is delighted.
