No action over false rape claim

She isn't named, and no further action will be taken. This after police informed the community about a rapist on the loose and likely raised a false level of fear. Glad to see this person is being treated as an adult, and held accountable for her actions.

POLICE say they are taking no further action against a woman who made a false accusation that she suffered a serious sexual assault by an unknown attacker in Gostrey Meadow, Farnham, last Friday.

The following day, Christmas Eve, police issued a warning that women should not walk home alone at night and recommended carrying personal attack alarms.

But by the end of the day, they reported that the woman, who was in her late 30s, admitted that she had made a false allegation.
