Student sex assault case dropped
Six Cambridge University students who were arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a male student will face no further action, police have said.

The alleged assault on the 19-year-old is said to have taken place on 17 March after a party.

The Girton College students, two from Cambridge and the others from Essex, Middlesex, Surrey and Wales were due to answer bail on Tuesday.

But a police spokesman said they had decided to drop the case.

"Their bail has been cancelled," said the spokesman.

"The decision was taken following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service and it was agreed no further action would be taken."
