No criminal charges against Chris Vobe, son of Warrington North MP Helen Jones
NO charges will be brought by the Crown Prosecution Service against Chris Vobe, the son of Labour MP Helen Jones.
Police have confirmed this afternoon that they have closed their investigations into alleged 'unlawful access to a personal e-mail account'.
The investigation started in October but the Crown Prosecution Service said this week they would not be taking the issue any further.
Both Clr Vobe, who represents Culcheth and Glazebury, and Clr Hitesh Patel, were suspended by the Labour party in October.
That administrative suspension remains in place.
A spokesman for the police said: "The role of the police in this investigation was to act upon a complaint made by a member of the public that alleged unlawful access had been gained to a personal email account.
"A thorough and impartial investigation commenced, and subsequently a full file of evidence was presented to the Crown Prosecution Service for decision and direction for criminal proceedings.
"The decision was taken by the CPS to not pursue the matter and the Constabulary acknowledge this decision."
Clr Vobe said: "I always said there was no substance in these allegations, and I am glad the investigation has proved this.
"I will continue to work dilligently for the residents I represent and the community that I love."
It is understood the party's investigation of the two councillors will now begin.
