The trial of a man charged with harassing actress Keira Knightley has collapsed because she was not available to give evidence in court.

Marek Daniluk, 41, a Polish national, of Godolphin Close, Enfield, appeared before magistrates in Westminster.

Mr Daniluk was told the matter had been discontinued and he was free to go.

He was arrested in February outside the Comedy Theatre in Panton Street, central London, where Knightley, 24, had been performing.

The Crown Prosecution Service said Ms Knightley was given several possible dates to testify but declined all of them.

Ms Knightley complained of being stalked by five people two years ago. It is believed to have led to her decision to move from the UK to the US.
