Neville Thurlbeck, 50, faced the allegations after posting a blog on March 7, giving the home address of a member of former employer News Corporation's management and standards committee. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed he would not be charged with the counts. He said:
I am pleased that the CPS has advised the police that no further action should be taken with regard to an allegation concerning one of my blog postings on nevillethurlbeck.com.
I would like to thank my family, friends and colleagues in the industry for their unswerving loyalty, support and continued belief in me.
