The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) had charged the couple of letting participants take part in trials more than once, failing to complete consent forms correctly and making a false application for an ethics committee opinion by saying Barrie was a nurse when he did not hold the necessary qualifications.

The couple said the judge threw out the charges over concerns about the disclosure of evidence by the MHRA, which prosecuted the case. The judge has ordered a full investigation into the agency's handling of the case.
