Care assault charges dropped
England international Danny Care will face no charges in relation to an alleged sexual assault on a woman in Leeds.
Care, who plays his club rugby for Harlequins, was arrested after the alleged incident in March and was bailed while the case was investigated.
But the Police and Crown Prosecution service have confirmed that no further action will be taken against the 25-year-old.
"The CPS and West Yorkshire Police have advised Danny Care's legal representatives that he will not be charged in relation to an alleged incident of sexual assault in Leeds," read a statement published by Harlequins.
Care had previously been cautioned by Police after being found guilty of drunk and disorderly behaviour and was arrested after being spotted urinating outside a hotel in Leeds.
The former Leeds Carnegie man, who made his England debut in 2008, has spoken of his relief at seeing these latest accusations against him dropped.
"I would like to thank all those who have supported me through this difficult time, in particular, my family and friends and all at Harlequins," he said.
