An investigation has been launched by the Metropolitan Police Service.
Officials from the police department have confirmed that no charges would be filed.

Bayern Munich is said to support Covid-19 vaccinations for their players.
However, according to Reuters, the club claims such injections are not required for its players.
This comes in the wake of the scandal involving Joshua Kimmich, who admitted he is not vaccinated.
Because of concerns about long-term adverse effects, the midfielder was strongly chastised for claiming he had not had a Covid injection.
“It is crucial to stress that we can only advise everyone to be vaccinated,” Bayern head Oliver Kahn said on Monday.
