Police investigating an alleged sexual assault on a 13-year-old girl in Southwell have concluded no offence took place.So, further action to take against the time-waster?
Why, no, of course not, the poor little lamb!
Detective Inspector Dave Walton, who led the inquiry, said: "Having conducted inquiries and, critically, spoken at length to the girl herself, I am now satisfied that no such offence took place.
"What the girl needs is support, which we and other agencies will continue to provide."*sigh*
"I appreciate news of this alleged offence will have caused concern and I hope the outcome of our investigation will help to reassure parents and children alike."Yes, I’m sure it’ll reassure all the other attention-seeking little nuisances…
DI Walton said it was of the "utmost importance" that victims of sexual assault had the confidence to report cases to the police in the knowledge they would be thoroughly investigated.And that there’d hardly ever be any consequences for wasting police time…
