Police have confirmed David Hockney’s ex-partner will not face drugs charges in connection with the death of the painter’s assistant last year.

John Fitzherbert, 48, and a 23-year-old man who has not been named, were arrested “on suspicion of drugs offences” following an inquest into the death of Dominic Elliott.

A spokesperson for Humberside Police said both men had been released unconditionally from police bail.
