Coronation Street actor Michael Le Vell has been cleared of child sex allegations.

The actor, who plays mechanic Kevin Webster in the soap, was arrested at his home in Hale, Greater Manchester, in September.

He was questioned and released on bail on suspicion of a sexual offence involving a young girl.

Police confirmed that after their investigation lawyers decided there was not enough evidence to charge him.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: "No further action will be taken against a 46-year-old male from Hale, arrested on suspicion of an [historical] sexual assault.

"A file of evidence was prepared for the Crown Prosecution Service, who decided there was insufficient evidence to charge."

Mr Le Vell had strenuously denied the allegations and continued in his role in the TV show.

He joined the soap in 1983 as Brian Tilsley's apprentice mechanic and became a favourite with fans who have followed his stormy marriage to Sally, played by Sally Dynevor.

The actor had a major role in December's live 50th anniversary episode, featuring a fatal tram crash in Weatherfield.Article Source

It doesn't mean he was innocent of the charge, only that the CPS never had sufficient evidence to charge him. Just his word against the girl in question.

I'm a great believer in Karma..so if he was guilty he will pay one way or another.
