A POLICE inquiry into alleged harassment and criminal damage suffered by health campaigner and former Stafford resident Julie Bailey has been dropped by Staffordshire Police.
A police spokesman said they contacted Ms Bailey after seeing media coverage about alleged incidents to get further information.
“Detectives were made aware of a number of issues, including damage to flowers and vases at her mother's grave,” she said. “Clearly, such offences are completely unacceptable.”
She said police began an investigation which involved taking witness statements, carrying out inquiries at incident locations and examining CCTV footage.
“We’ve now finished our detailed inquiries and, at this stage, we have not been able to recover evidence which could help us identify offenders.”
"We’ve informed Ms Bailey of this outcome and advised her that, should any new information come to light, we will re-open our inquiries."
“After being made aware of the issues we maintained regular contact with Ms Bailey, put in place a number of measures to protect her safety and offered to provide other personal safety precautions,” she said. “We will continue to monitor the situation and maintain contact with Ms Bailey.
"Harassment and criminal damage should not be tolerated and Staffordshire Police takes all such incidents very seriously.
