Former England football player Paul Gascoigne was being questioned by police after he was arrested on suspicion of being drunk in charge of a vehicle on Monday.

The former Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder was taken into custody last night after police were called to a disturbance at a takeaway in Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire.

The 42-year-old, who has alcohol abuse problems and depression, and another man were being questioned by officers this morning.

Gascoigne was sectioned three times under the Mental Health Act in 2008.
