Police have dropped their investigation into an allegation of child sex abuse against former Bay City Rollers manager Tam Paton.
Surrey Police has told the 64-year-old that no further enquiries will be carried out into an allegation that he abused an underage boy in the late 1970s.
Mr Paton was taken in for questioning at the same time as the TV presenter Matthew Kelly, who was cleared last month.
Another man, 52-year-old songwriter Stephen Jolley, was also cleared.
Apparently Pete Townshend's being let off with a caution too. Read about this in the Telegraph today, according to which he had to plead guilty and therefore will have a police record, but there won't be any further punishment. How long until Robert del Naja gets let off too? I find it interesting, after all, that for all these high-profile pedophilia cases of late (Paton, del Naja, Townshend, Kelly and Jolley), Pete's the only one so far they've been able to pin anything on and even then he's being largely let off lightly...
