Wings over Scotland blogger faces no action after arrest
Stuart Campbell, of Bath, Somerset, was accused of online harassment.
A prominent pro-independence blogger has been told he faces no further action following his arrest over online harassment allegations.
Stuart Campbell, who runs the website Wings over Scotland, was arrested at his home in Bath, Somerset, in August.
Police said his arrest was due to "suspicion of harassment and malicious communications" against a woman who made a complaint about the alleged behaviour at a south London police station.
He has now been informed he will face no further action over the complaint.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Police in Southwark investigated an allegation of online harassment against a woman, aged in her 30s, over the past two years.
"On August 18, a man aged in his 40s was arrested at an address in the Avon and Somerset area on suspicion of harassment and malicious communications.
"He has now been informed that he is released with no further action."
In a statement published on his website following his arrest, Mr Campbell said the allegation relates "entirely to some tweets from our Twitter account, none of which have been deleted and all of which are still publicly visible".
Since its launch in 2011, Wings over Scotland has become one of the most widely read Scottish politics websites.
Mr Campbell regularly receives thousands of pounds in donations from readers who enjoy his pro-independence blog.
