Then in this case there is no way to withdraw the statement or stop its use at a criminal court proceedings.
You are able to contact the police, and arrange to make a second witness statement. In that second statement, you can correct anything in the first one, or say that you do not support a prosecution etc.
The new statement would then be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service to review.
