Jim Davidson is "pleased" to have been told he will face no further action after he was arrested on suspicion of historical sexual offences, his solicitor has said.
The 59-year-old comedian was initially held in January by detectives from Operation Yewtree, the national investigation sparked by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal, before being re-arrested in March after further allegations emerged.
His solicitor, Henri Brandman, said: "My client Jim Davidson was, of course, arrested a number of months ago in respect of allegations of a historical sexual nature.
"He is pleased to have received news today that there will be no further action relating to the allegations."
