The Metropolitan police issued a statement last night the Met revealed the charge had been dropped.
It said: 'Following discussion with the Crown Prosecution Service, Mr Doyle is no longer charged with the offence and will not be appearing at court.
'Police may not make charging decisions on offences under Section 19 of the Public Order Act. There will be further consultation with CPS.'
The CPS guidance says people 'can only be prosecuted [under that section of the act] with consent of attorney general.'
