However, the police have told The News that their investigation has now been ‘filed’ and will no longer be pursued.

Although it can be re-opened should further evidence/information comes to light.

Both sides meet at Fratton Park tomorrow night (7.45pm) with the Blues seeking to build on a run of 10 points from a possible 12 since that Kassam Stadium outcome.
