Isle of Anglesey's former director of housing, John Arthur Jones, will not face a court retrial, the Crown Prosecution Service has decided.

The Daily Post (11 February, p7) reported that Mr Jones's trial for charges of misconduct in public office, was halted after six says when it emerged that a key prosecution witness had spoken to other witnesses despite being warned not to.

The judge issued a stay of indictment at the trial, which effectively prevented the case being reheard. The CPS had decided to seek retrial but now says it 'would not advance the interests of justice' to continue.

Mr Jones, who is now in the process of trying to get his old job back, said: 'Perhaps this will be an end to the matter.' Referring to his efforts to get an employment tribunal hearing, he added: 'I have no doubt that this will be successful.'
