POLICE have dropped the case against snooker star Stephen Lee, who was being investigated on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs.

Lee, 31, was arrested after a police swoop on his home in Albany Close, Trowbridge, earlier this year.

Lee was interviewed and bailed so inquiries could continue, but the world number 10 was informed by letter that police would be taking no further action at this time. A spokesman for Wiltshire Police confirmed the letter had been sent and the case had been dropped.
