EXCLUSIVE: Tory Blogger Cleared In Assault Row.



TBG can tonight exclusively confirm that Tory Blogger Geoff Brooking has been cleared of assault accusations made by Labour Councillor Richard Farnell.

Farnell claimed in an accusation to Greater Manchester Police that the Tory Blogger assaulted him in Rochdale on August 6th.

However, following the news that the Tory Blogger helped police with their inquiries recently during, which he gave a full account of what happened, Mr Brooking was this week formally notified that after a review of the case no action is to be taken.

Mr Brooking told tbg - "Whilst I am pleased at this news I still believe that I have been very unfairly treated and given the fact that I was assaulted twice in the first instance and my complaint against Mr Farnell was only treated as a 'counter accusation' I intend to make a complaint to the relevant authorities through my solicitor and report Mr Farnell to his local Standards Board Committee."
