Singer Britney Spears and husband Kevin Federline will not be investigated after child protection officers visited their home, her lawyer has said.

"They determined that the parents were not involved in any injury and nothing improper was done in the home," said Marty Singer on behalf of the couple.

He added that the Department of Children and Family Services concluded that there was "no problem".

Malibu police confirmed that Spears' home was visited on Saturday.

Police visited Spears' in February after photos showing her driving with her baby son on her lap were published.

'Routine request'

The 24-year-old singer later said it was a "mistake", but insisted she was reacting against pursuing paparazzi photographers at the time.

The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services and the sheriff's station declined to give details of Saturday afternoon's visit.

"It's a very standard, routine patrol request," said Debra Glafkides, from the sheriff's department.

"We just roll out with them. We stood by, we took no action, no report or anything."
