NO charges have been brought against a member of staff at the Bright Kids Nursery at Crabbs Cross, Redditch, who was arrested last month (February).

Detective Inspector Dean Jones said that following a full investigation no offences had been established. A person arrested on February 4 had been on police bail but that had now been cancelled and no further action would be taken.

Det Insp Jones said that after the matter had been brought to their attention police had worked with the nursery and partner agencies to ensure children’s safeguarding processes were followed from the outset.

He added: “We hope people will feel reassured that we have carried out a thorough investigation and we would like to thank parents and everyone else connected with the nursery for their co-operation and understanding throughout our inquiries.”
