Barrymore suspect is released

- By John Twomey

A MAN arrested in March on suspicion of the indecent assault and murder of Stuart Lubbock at Michael Barrymore’s home in 2001 has been released without charge.

Essex Police said there was insufficie­nt evidence for a “realistic chance of a successful prosecutio­n”.

DCI Stephen Jennings said it was a “huge disappoint­ment” to all of the detectives involved.

He added: “I know that this may be of little comfort to Stuart’s father and his family.”

Stuart’s dad Terry is seriously ill.

Barrymore, who has always denied any involvemen­t, declined to comment.
