So now we have a conflict.

The police, having considered the evidence have expressed the view that Cummings did break the law.

While the Attorney General and superintendent of the CPS @SuellaBraverman immediately endorsed a partisan claim of no legal wrongdoing.

What a mess.
It looks as if no action is to be taken, but had Cummings been issued with a fixed penalty notice, and had he refused to pay, he would have been prosecuted. By the Crown Prosecution Service. Whose independent judgement would have been compromised by the AG’s partisan games.
This, I’m afraid, is a resigning issue for @SuellaBraverman. She has, through a wholesale failure to understand her role as Attorney General, politicised an independent criminal inquiry, presupposing the outcome and embarrassing the CPS.
