They will almost certainly summons you if you are not already. Their current policy is to summons reluctant witnesses.
If you attend court and resile from your statement they will just put your original statement to you hearsay
The only real option is to stay away although they may try to introduce your statement hearsay but it is weaker then. But equally they may get a summons and arrest you on a witness warrant.
That said, you may be in luck and they may let you retract.
