Police say there’s insufficient evidence to prosecute

Cristiano Ronaldo will not face charges following his car accident in January.

The Real Madrid footballer’s £200,000 Ferrari 599 GTB was written off when he crashed into the concrete wall of a tunnel under Manchester Airport.

The front edge of the red sports car was demolished and one of the wheels came off, but Cristiano escaped unhurt.

After investigating the incident, authorities have confirmed there is insufficient evidence to launch a prosecution.

‘No further action will be taken against the driver of a Ferrari 599 GTB, which collided with a wall on the A538 Wilmslow Road on Thursday 8 January 2009,’ says a Greater Manchester Police spokesman.

Manchester Airport is pursuing an insurance claim for the £20,000 damage caused to the tunnel.
