A police officer who was suspended following sexual assault allegations will not face criminal proceedings, a force has said.

Gwent Police suspended the officer, based in Newport, after an accusation of sexual assault in Cardiff was made in August.

A spokesman said: "Inquiries have now concluded and the criminal investigation has closed."

However, he added an internal misconduct investigation was ongoing.
