Britain’s Prince Philip will not face prosecution following a car crash in Sandringham last month.

In an announcement made on Thursday, the British Crown Prosecution Service said the 97-year-old will not be prosecuted as it wouldn’t be in the public interest.

Phillip who submitted his licence to police last Saturday, was the subject of an investigation after his Land Rover Freelander collided with another vehicle which was carrying two women.

Although two of the women sustained minor injuries following the crash, police say it wouldn’t be in the public interest to pursue a prosecution given the level of culpability and the age of the driver.

The CPS added that all those involved in the crash have been informed in writing about the results of the enquiry.
