A TENNIS club employee arrested and suspended from his exclusive club for "non-recent sexual offences" will face no further action from police.

Dorset Police conducted an investigation into the individual at the West Hants Club in Talbot Woods after being made aware of allegations in October last year.

A man was suspended from all tennis activity while allegations were examined by police and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA).

Members of the Roslin Road South club were notified of the allegations by the club's Chief Executive Peter Elviss.

A police spokesman told the Daily Echo: "Dorset Police received a referral from the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) on Tuesday October 13 2020 after being made aware of three allegations relating to non-recent sexual offences between 2013 and 2015 involving a member of staff at the West Hants Club in Roslin Road South in Bournemouth.

"A full investigation was carried out and a man was arrested and released under investigation. Following enquiries carried out in joint partnership with the LTA, he has been released from the investigation and will face no further police action in connection with these allegations."
