Leave.EU, a Brexit campaign group led by Arron Banks, will not face any further criminal investigation into the spending return it submitted after the European Union referendum, police said on Friday. Police had submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service to investigate whether further action was needed.

"Following detailed enquiries it became apparent that the nature of potential breaches of the regulations, the criminal standard of proof required in court and the actions taken by Leave.EU to adhere to the regulations, mean that it is now appropriate to take no further action," Alex Murray, of Central Specialist Crime, said.
