A 22-year-old and 24-year-old from the Ipswich area were arrested in March on suspicion of rape of a 24-year-old woman at the home of former Ipswich Town defender Titus Bramble.

Following the allegation they were arrested and then released on bail. This week it has been confirmed that they will not face any further action.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “If any further information comes to light, we will be looking into it. This is the end of the investigation for now.”

Bramble, who played 152 games for Ipswich before his £5million transfer to Newcastle in July 2002, was spoken to after a the woman claimed she was attacked by one man as another watched.
