The grandmother of schoolgirl Tia Sharp is to face no action relating to the youngster’s death.

Tia’s body was discovered at her grandmother Christine Sharp’s home in New Addington, south London, in August this year, more than a week after the 12-year-old was reported missing.

It was decided on December 4 that no further action is to be taken against Mrs Sharp, who was arrested on suspicion of murder before being bailed, the Met Police said this week.

In a statement Scotland Yard added: “A 39-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender remains on police bail until mid-December.”

Mrs Sharp’s partner, 37-year-old Stuart Hazell, has been charged with Tia’s murder and is due to go on trial next year.
