Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs will not face a retrial over domestic violence claims after prosecutors on Tuesday withdrew the charges due to the unwillingness of his ex-girlfriend to give evidence.

Giggs, was due to go on trial for a second time on July 31 after a month-long trial last year ended without the jury reaching a verdict.

The prosecuting lawyer Peter Wright told Manchester Crown Court in north west England that there was no realistic chance of conviction.

Giggs, a former Wales international, had denied the allegations of controlling and coercive behaviour against former girlfriend Greville as well as assaulting her and her younger sister.

The three counts could have lead to a five-year jail term, but he has now been cleared of all charges.
