THERE will be no further action by police over Nigella Lawson's admissions that she took drugs, Scotland Yard said today.

The Metropolitan Police said a specialist team had examined all the evidence relating to the 53-year-old's confessions during the fraud trial of her two former assistants, but has concluded there will be no further action.

In her testimony, she admitted smoking cannabis in front of her children.

She also said she took cocaine on six occasions, to help her cope with her first husband John Diamond's terminal cancer and latterly as her marriage to Saatchi began to break down.

She has vehemently denied claims that she regularly took drugs.
