A man arrested and handcuffed by Cambridgeshire police as he stepped off a plane at Gatwick Airport, has been released without charge.
“Following questioning, the Crown Prosecution Service refused to authorise a charge,” said a police spokesperson.
However, the 28-year-old from Spalding, arrested on suspicion of offences including assault causing actual bodily harm, has been given a civil protection order to “protect the victim”.
In a Facebook post Cambridgeshire police said the man was initially arrested “on suspicion of committing multiple offences in Huntingdonshire and Lincolnshire”.
On Policing Huntingdonshire Facebook, a post says: “Sometimes our duties require us to travel outside of the county and this was the case recently when we were notified of a man who would be travelling through Gatwick airport.
“He was wanted for a number of offences involving domestic abuse in Huntingdonshire.
“Our officers were there to meet him with handcuffs as he came off the aeroplane. Investigations continue.”
