A SUNDERLAND-born former News of the World reporter has thanked supporters after being told he will not be charged with intimidating a witness or harassment.

Neville Thurlbeck, 50, faced the allegation after posting a blog in March giving the address of a member of News Corporation’s management and standards committee.

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed he would not be charged with the counts, which relate to Scotland Yard’s phone hacking inquiry.

He said: “I would like to thank my family, friends and colleagues in the industry for their unswerving loyalty, support and continued belief in me.”
