Gillian Sturgeon, 46, was arrested on Wednesday August 11th after being called on Saturday August 7th about an incident on property in Kilwinning, Ayrshire.

Both wife Sturgeon and the man were charged and released for pledging to appear before Kilmarnock Sheriff Court at a later date and a report was sent to the prosecutor.

Although the charges have since been dropped, remains the case open as both complainants have the right to request a review.

A spokesman for the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service said, “This matter remains under the Contempt of Court Act 1981.

“In order to protect future proceedings and to protect the rights of the complainants, the Crown will not comment at this point.”
