Nigella avoids police action over drug admission during trial

Police will take no further action against TV cook Nigella Lawson after she told a court that she had taken drugs, Scotland Yard has said.

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.

Self-styled domestic goddess Ms Lawson revealed during the trial of Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo that she took Class A drug cocaine with her late husband John Diamond when he found out he had terminal cancer, and in July 2010 when she claimed she was being ”subjected to intimate terrorism” by her former husband, Charles Saatchi.
