Jo Brand in clear over BNP joke

Comedienne Jo Brand will not be prosecuted over her remarks about the British National Party during a BBC comedy programme.

The comments - about the leaking of the BNP's membership on to the internet - were made during the Live At The Apollo show, broadcast on January 16. Miss Brand, 51, told the Hammersmith Apollo: 'Hurrah. Now we know who to send the poo to.'

Following complaints from the BNP, Miss Brand was investigated for allegedly committing an act of incitement to cause racial harassment but the Crown Prosecution Service said yesterday: 'We have advised the police to take no further action.'
