A wee birdy just told me that as of 30 minutes ago, Phil Charles was cleared of all charges.
Haven’t seen an official announcement yet….
Evening update : The Nature news team have been quick off the mark. They have a story already. As you will see there, it is still officially completely unclear what Phil Charles was actually accused of. But maybe we will find out by Monday…
Midnight update : Here is the NRF announcement. Possibly a tad petulant and stunningly unspecific.
