Isle Of Wight Zoo Supporter TV’s Chris Packham “Cleared” After Malta Arrest

Chris Packham releases a statement via Facebook Live.

Isle of Wight Zoo supporter, TV presenter Chris Packham, says he has been cleared of assault in Malta.

As Isle of Wight Radio reported earlier, he was arrested yesterday (Wednesday) following an allegation of assault as he filmed on sister-island Gozo.

The Springwatch presenter is a trustee of the Wild Heart Trust which the zoo is a member of.

He was making a documentary on illegal bird trapping.

Mr Packham has told journalists that a magistrate has thrown the case out.
