A spokeswoman for the CPS said the police had not submitted a file to the service in order for it to consider a charging decision."We cannot charge unless a file is submitted by the police", she added. "We conducted a thorough investigation and sought advice from the Crown Prosecution Service", a spokesman for Essex Police said. "They [the CPS] did not have the jurisdiction to advise on any charging decision."We have completed our enquiries as far as we are legally able to, given that the incident did not happen within our jurisdiction, and are now in contact with the Spanish legal authorities so that they can determine how they wish to proceed."
